Masters Preview: Eight players tipped for Augusta success

After an exhaustive process which ruled out all but eight of the players who will line up at Augusta, here are our top tips to win a Green Jacket this year.

After putting the entire field through our extensive screening process, these are the ‘last men standing’ and the players that we believe have the best chance of succeeding at Augusta this year.

Luke Donald 

Three top 10s in last eight years and possibly the best all-round short game of anyone in the field. 

Price:  25-1  Rating: ****

Rory McIlroy 

Modest form and more pressure than ever but we said similar going into 2011 US Open. Where he won by eight. 

Price: 10-1  Rating: ***

Matt Kuchar 

Third last year and has already tucked away the Match Play crown. Still only 34 so expect more progress. 

Price: 40-1  Rating: ***

Louis Oosthuizen 

Second last year and a Major winner when he thrashed the field at St Andrews by seven. Owner of a rock-solid swing.

Price: 28-1  Rating: ****

Tiger Woods 

Doral win was huge and been in top six here in six of the last seven years. Before that won four times in nine outings.

Price: 15-2  Rating: ****

Charl Schwartzel 

Showed incredible form before Christmas and the only player to birdie the last four holes to win at Augusta. 

Price: 22-1  Rating: ****

Brandt Snedeker 

Injury has slowed his outstanding progress this year. Third in 2008 despite a closing 77 and up there last two years.  

Price: 20-1  Rating: ***

Ian Pouter 

First Major since Medinah in an event he has two top 10s in the last three years. Will the Postman deliver?

Price: 45-1  Rating: ***
