Woods has arrived at Augusta for the first time in 24 months last week to test his game and it looks like all systems are a go.

- Rory McIlroy – 11/2 – McIlroy’s in good form and should have a great showing at Augusta this week. If he can build upon the eleventh place finish at the Arnold Palmer Invitational in his last, he’ll be tough.
- Jordan Spieth – 9/1 – Spieth has been hot. He finished second in the both the Valero Texas Open and the Shell Houston Open. But, he lives in Texas. The Masters will be a different story.
- Bubba Watson – 10/1 – The third place finish at the WGC-Cadillac was exactly what he needed. That tightener should set him up well for a deep Augusta run. 10/1 odds are short, but he looks more than capable of winning this week. He’s the pick.
- Jason Day – 12/1 – The overall record, 4 Top 10 finishes out of 7 events this year, is good. But, his form appears to be going south. The odds are too low to warrant a wager.
- Dustin Johnson – 14/1 – DJ won the WGC-Cadillac Championship. He finished sixth in the Valero Open. It’s tough to argue against those golf handicappers looking to back him.
- Henrik Stenson – 14/1 – Henrik tore it up in March. He finished fourth in the WGC-Cadillac, fourth in the Valspar and second in the Arnold Palmer.
- Jimmy Walker – 18/1 – Even though he’s ranked first on the earnings list, there’s a good chance that he bounces off of the Valero Texas Open win. Also, the odds make him an underlay.
- Adam Scott – 20/1 – Scott is going to have to turn his form around big time in order to contend. He missed the cut at the Valspar and finished thirty-fifth at the Arnold Palmer. The odds don’t justify the risk on Adam.
- Phil Mickelson – 20/1 – Phil’s really not golfing well enough to warrant a wager at 20 to 1. He has no Top 10 finishes this year. Does he like Augusta? Yes, he does. But the odds are just too short.
- Patrick Reed – 25/1 – Reed actually has an interesting pattern that could set him up well this week. He follows up bad finishes with good finishes. The seventeenth place finish in the Valspar in his last means that he’s going to do well at Augusta this week.
- Rickie Fowler – 25/1 – Fowler’s form is off big time. He goes to Augusta off of a seventy-first place finish at the Shell Houston Open. I wouldn’t touch Rickie with your money.
- Brandt Snedeker – 28/1 – After finishing fifty-third at the Valspar, he finished thirteenth at the Arnold Palmer. That’s a good sign. At the odds, Snedeker’s worth a long look.
- Matt Kuchar – 28/1 – Kuchar’s form makes him a long shot. The question is at what long shot price are golf handicappers willing to take? For my money, 28 to 1 is not a high enough price.
- Tiger Woods – 28/1 – Talk about long shots. Eldrick hasn’t won the Masters since 2005. He hasn’t won a major since 2008 and he’s had numerous surgeries since then.
- Justin Rose – 35/1 – Rose has missed 3 cuts out of 7 events this year. 35 to 1 are underlay odds. You have to think creatively in order to put money on Rose to win this week.
- Sergio Garcia – 35/1 – Sergio’s not striking the ball exceptionally well, but he’s still Sergio. He could surprise this week and considering he’s offering better odds than Tiger…why not?
- Lee Westwood – 40/1 – This is the dog to back. He just missed the cut at the Shell Houston Open, but he comes up big in the big events. The expectation is that Westwood will be in position for a win on Sunday. That’s all you can ask.
