McIlroy seeks career grand slam as favourite on Masters odds

McIlroy seeks career grand slam as favourite on Masters odds

Affectionately regarded as the "Cathedral of Pines", the 7,475-yard Augusta National layout is one of the most famous golf courses in the world and the only permanent venue for any of the sport's four majors.

Like all Masters champions, fellow Spaniard Sergio Garcia became an honorary member with his triumph in 2017, a win that perhaps afforded him a sneak peak behind the mystique spawned by the secrecy that surrounds the club.

Experience on the hard greens is something Mickelson can rely on to help snag a Green Jacket for the fourth time, with his 100th career round at the Masters slated for Friday. I was right there and just needed to have a couple more things to go my way and not throw away a couple shots here and there, which I was able to do at East Lake. The 34-year-old American claimed his lone major title at the 2016 US Open and has finished among the top ten in his past three Masters appearances.

"It proved to me I could win again", he said of his wire-to-wire victory in Atlanta.

In his remarks, Ridley mentioned how well-received the event has been not just among golf fans, but among staff, partners, sponsors and members. "And I would never rule him out".

Tiger Woods aside, there's unlikely to be a more popular victor this weekend than Rickie Fowler.

Speaking of hopeful first time major winners. Consider that the long reach of the late Bobby Jones, generally regarded as the most accomplished amateur golfer ever to play the game. Patrick Reed found that out firsthand past year after claiming his first major title at Augusta National Golf Club.

After successful back fusion surgery and a long tedious recovery Woods returned to the winner's circle a year ago, picking up his 80th career title with a stunning victory at the Tour Championship.

The Masters, which began in 1934 on a new course on the site of a former fruit nursery, is the youngest of golf's majors but as the only one at the same venue every year it has built up its own unique traditions.

McIlroy added: "I think I've found a formula that works for me, and I'm going to persist with it and I'm going to stick to it".

The last three groups going out on Thursday promise to be particularly compelling, with world number two Dustin Johnson joining Bryson DeChambeau and 2011 Masters runner-up Jason Day on the course at 1:38 p.m. ET.

In truth, the tournament is wide open, and a coveted Green Jacket beckons for the man who can get in position and withstand the crackling atmosphere of a Masters Sunday afternoon. I feel like my recent results aren't a tell of where my game is actually at.

Then there's the powerful Johnson himself, a two-time victor already this year with a best of fourth at Augusta.
