The 76th Masters begins today from the Augusta National, the first golf Major of the year.

This 76th tournament is the most wide open in years and 2BET2 gives you the opportunity to bet on who you think the outright winner will be.

Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy have dominated all the headlines, with a resurgent Woods the bookies favourite. The 4 times Green Jacket winner, has put all his off the course problems behind him and has climbed back up to no. 7 in the world following a string of performances that has suggested he is not far off the dominate form he displayed for more than a decade. 2 weeks ago he clinched his 72nd professional tour win at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, his first PGA Tour win in two and a half years. The 14 times Major winner has a remodeled swing and is hot with the putter and sits at 5/1 to win outright.

Northern Ireland’s Rory McIlroy has come of age over the last 12 months and currently sits at no. 2 in the world rankings. Who can ever forget his capitulation on the back 9 last year in the final round of The Masters. Fans wondered if he could ever recover from that, however recover he did in spectacular fashion barely 2 months later lifting the US Open in emphatic style. McIlroy at 6/1 wont let Tiger get away and a fascinating dual between these two could be the main attaction on the final day.

All the attention might be on those two however a host of other players are in good form and capable of donning the green jacket at the end of the week. “Lefty” Phil Mickelson, a 3 times winner at Augusta, failed to defend his Houston Open crown last week however finished strongly only 4 shots off the winner, Hunter Mahan. Mickelson likes the big tournaments and expressed that early in the season at Pebble Beach, in the AT&T and at 12/1 could end up with a 4th Masters win.

English duo, Luke Donald and Lee Weswood are at 16/1 and 22/1 respectively. Despite the world no. 1 and world no. 3 being the most consistent players around for the last 3 years, they have yet to win a Major. Don’t rule out one of these being a first time winner.

Australians Adam Scott and Jason Day will also be in the running. Both put in superb performances last year and were only denied when defending champion Charl Schwartzel birdied the last 4 holes to claim the win. Scott at 35/1, Day at 40/1 and Schwartzel at 45/1 look a good bet.

Glorious Augusta is set to host the event yet again, and with greats like Gary Player, Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer set to be in the galleries, get set for one of sports great occasions.
