Summary:

Four-time Masters champion Tiger Woods (+1100) headlines a strong field of competitors for this year’s tournament.  Woods hasn’t won the Masters since 2005, but he has proven to finally be healthy having already recorded two top five finishes this season.  Defending champion Sergio Garcia (+2800) returns to Augusta after finally ending his Majors drought last year.  Rory McIlroy (+900) is the odds-on favorite to win the tournament this year according to Bovada.  McIlroy dominated the competition at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and looks to be in top form.  World number one Dustin Johnson (+1100), Jordan Spieth (+1000), and Justin Thomas (+1000) are among the other popular picks to take home the Green Jacket this year.
