Early Favorites to win the 2013 Masters

Rory McIlroy - 2013 MastersRory McIlroy – Anointed as "the next one" in golf, McIlroy, the world #1 golfer looks to get back to his winning ways and take aim at his first green jacket. Finishing a disappointing 40th in 2012, McIlroy will be considered a favorite going into the 2013 Masters tournament.

Tiger Woods - 2013 MastersTiger Woods – Woods looks to regain his past glory at The Masters and continue his pursuit of Jack Nicklaus’ majors record. The Masters has historically been good to Tiger, and 2013 could be a make or break year as to whether or not he will break the record.

Dustin Johnson - 2013 MastersDustin Johnson – Many believe that Dustin Johnson is poised to have a fantastic 2013 and The Masters golf tournament would be a great coming out party for him. He has started off strong in 2013 and will be looked at as a strong contender for this year's tourney.

Luke Donald - 2013 MastersLuke Donald – The former #1 golfer in the world has held the moniker of "best golfer not to win a major" for a while now. He has never played particularly well at Augusta in the past, but should always be looked at as a contender given his talents on the golf course.

Bubba Watson - 2013 MastersBubba Watson – The defending Masters champion, Bubba Watson looks to make it 2 in a row and build off a strong 2012. Watson has always had great length off the tee and finally had his short game catch up. He will again be looked at to play well through the tournament and will be close to the top of everyone’s Masters favorites list.
