No sooner had Rory McIlroy been handed the ‘new’ Players Championship golden trophy and brushed the field aside than he was showing as favourite to win at Augusta.
Irish-based Paddy Power has installed the now World No. 4 as a 7/1 favourite to not only capture a fifth Major, but with it become just the sixth player in history of the game to win the Grand Slam.
‘DJ’ is second favourite at 10/1 while Justin Rose is 12/1.
In fact, England-based William Hill agrees with Paddy Power and also shows McIlroy at 7/1, with ‘DJ’ also at 10/1 while Rose and Tiger Woods share 12/1 odds heading to the year’s first Major.
Here is a list of Paddy Power odds for the game’s best currently set to be driving down Magnolia Lane, including triple Augusta winner Tiger Woods and his double Masters winning colleague Jose Maria Olazabal at 1,000/1.
