Rain is in the forecast for the Masters, and that could make the Augusta National course play longer, which gives defending champion Bubba Watson, favorite Rory McIlroy and young star Jordan Spieth an added boost. Jason Day also should be a major factor this week.
As the No. 1-ranked golfer in the world, Rory McIlroy is the favorite to win the Masters at 6-1. A victory would complete a career Grand Slam (he has won the U.S. Open, British Open and PGA Championship), joining Ben Hogan, Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods in accomplishing the feat.
Under normal circumstances, Rory McIlroy would be the top story. He’s the No. 1 player in the world, he won the past two majors and he’s the favorite in the Masters. But for the first time in two months, Tiger Woods is playing, and guess who is getting all the attention?
