Jason Day

Country: Australia

Age: 28

Odds: 7-1

World ranking: 1

FedEx Cup ranking: 2

Masters entered; top finish: 5; 2nd, 2011

Off the tee: With six wins since July, including the 2015 PGA Championship and his two starts before hitting Augusta, Jason is one sweltering hot Day. Unfortunately, his frequent physical ailments (back, thumb, vertigo) always seem just a swing away.

Jordan Spieth

Country: United States

Age: 22

Odds: 10-1

World ranking: 2

FedEx Cup ranking: 13

Masters entered: 2; Won, 2015

Off the tee: He opened 2016 going 1st, 5th and 2nd, but his best finish since then was just a T-9th at the Dell Match Play. That said, anything is going to pale compared to Spieth’s 2015 (won Masters, U.S. Open; 4th British Open; 2nd PGA).

Rory McIlroy

Country: Northern Ireland

Age: 26

Odds: 8-1

World ranking: 3

FedEx Cup ranking: 36

Masters entered; top finish: 7; 4th, 2015

Off the tee: Needs a Masters victory to complete the career grand slam. He’s getting closer: T-40th in 2012, T-25th in 2013, T-8th in 2014, 4th in 2015. McIlroy hasn’t won in 2016, but four top-six finishes worldwide show his form isn’t far off.

Bubba Watson

Country: United States

Age: 37

Odds: 12-1

World ranking: 4

FedEx Cup ranking: 7

Masters entered: 7; Won, 2012, ’14

Off the tee: Augusta National favors right-handers who draw the ball right to left. That’s also true for lefties who bend it like Bubba with a power fade. He has a win at Riviera (just like before his 2014 Masters win) and a 2nd in his last three starts.

Adam Scott

Country: Australia

Age: 35

Odds: 12-1

World ranking: 7

FedEx Cup ranking: 1

Masters entered: 14; Won, 2013

Off the tee: The anchored putter ban was supposed to be curtains for Scott. He responded with a 2nd behind Watson and wins in the Honda and Cadillac Championship. Still owns the prettiest swing in the game.
