Can Anyone Stop Woods and McIlroy At The Masters?

The first golf Major of the year gets underway on Thursday with the Masters from Augusta.

Betting on this year’s Masters looks as exciting as ever with lots of players going into it thinking they can win. It really does have the making to be one the most entertaining and dramatic Masters yet.

Those betting on golf this weekend will see that Tiger Woods is the highest ranked player who has won at Augusta in the past.

At number seven in the world, Tiger has the knowhow and experience to win this Major, while the six above him have all yet to win at Augusta.

This reason, combined with his return to winning ways last week, means that bookmakers have Tiger as one of the favourites to pick up another victory this weekend. All eyes are on the American and Northern Irishman Rory Mcllroy.

Mcllroy had the victory in his sights last year, but an awful final round cost him his first Major win. The young Northern Irishman will admit he was not ready to win last year, however he insists he has learnt a great deal since then and is therefore a much better player now.

He has now picked up his first Major of course, winning the US open in June last year.

Woods and Mcllroy are the two clear favourites for this year’s Masters. Woods is 5/1 with bet365 while Mcllroy is 6/1 with SkyBet.

Betting pundits see the next challenger as American Phil Mickelson, the 41-year-old is 12/1 with BetVictor to pick up his first Masters title.

Mcllroy’s fellow Northen Irishman Graham McDowell could be a good outside bet, BoyleSports are offering 66/1 on McDowell coming into some form with a win at Augusta.

It is sure to be an exhilarating four days at Augusta with lots of twists and turns throughout the weekend. Coverage start from 7pm on Thursday.

The US Masters - Is Tiger the man to beat once again?

After his victory this week, many golf betting pundits are suggesting that Tiger Woods is back towards his best. After a year or two in the wilderness, he could be back to challenging for major tournaments.

This means he is getting plenty of backing for the US Masters which take place from the 5th - 8th April 2012. Despite his lack of victories of late, many believe momentum is now on his side and he can win two tournaments in quick succession.

There are of course plenty of other contenders - including British trio Luke Donald, Rory McIlroy and Lee Westwood - but when Tiger is on form, there are still argubaly not many better.

It has added a great sense of excitement too, because as good as the best players in the world are, nobody gets people talking about golf more than Tiger Woods.

As for how the man himself is feeling ahead of the Masters, he admitted this week that he is extremely excited about the famous tournament.

He said: "I'm excited about the Masters. It's always fun to play there and I'm looking forward to going to Augusta with the momentum I've built here."

As for Woods' odds for success at the Masters, he is the favourite with most bookies and can be backed at 4/1 with Skybet.

As mentioned though, there are plenty of other options for your golf bets. Rory McIlroy is of course one of the most exciting young players for many years and he is available at 5/1 with Ladbrokes to win in Augusta.

Then comes Phil Mickelson (12/1), Luke Donald (14/1) and Lee Westwood (16/1) with all of these odds availiable with Bet365. The in-form Justin Rose can then be backed at longer odds of 33/1 with Coral.

As for a massive outside bet to consider, young American Rickie Fowler is 80/1 to win the Masters with Paddy Power
