Woods, McIlroy listed as early favorites at 2013 Masters

Tiger Woods is the early favorite to prevail at Augusta National Golf Club in 2013, despite Rory McIlroy’s recent victory at the PGA Championship.

Tiger is listed as 11/2 to earn his fifth green jacket, while the surging McIlroy is right behind him as a 13/2 favorite after reclaiming his No. 1 status in the World Golf Rankings this past week.

The duo didn’t fare well in the tournament in 2012, finishing in a tie for 40th with identical scores of five-over par, 15 strokes off the pace.

McIlroy’s best finish at the Masters was a 15th place result in 2011.

Bubba Watson is the defending Masters champion after he edged South African Louis Oosthuizen in a playoff. Bubba is listed at 25/1 to defend his title next year, while Oosthuizen is 40/1 to claim the major.

Phil Mickelson (15/1), Lee Westwood (20/1), Adam Scott (25/1), Matt Kuchar (40/1), and Ian Poulter (60/1) all had top 10 finishes at Augusta this April.

Here’s the complete list of odds for the event courtesy of the Las Vegas Hotel and Casino.
