The Masters Golf Tournament – It's all about the Green Jacket

For many fans The Masters is the highlight of the golfing calendar.

Indeed not only to golf fans, the Masters is one of those special sporting events alongside Wimbledon, the Monaco Grand Prix & the FIFA World Cup, which gains interest from a broad range of spectators who would otherwise pay sport no heed.

There are 18 different ways in which a golfer can qualify for the famous Masters Tournament - played each year at the beautiful Augusta National course in Georgia.

The easiest method of getting an invite is to win the event, as 2009 favourite Tiger Woods has... on four occasions.

In doing so, he became the youngest ever winner of the event aged 21 years and three months, as opposed to the oldest winner Jack Nicklaus, who claimed the Green Jacket for the sixth time back in 1986, aged 46 years young.

Casting an eye over to the betting for the forthcoming tournament, William Hill is currently offering you the Best Price available on Tiger Woods claiming his fifth Green Jacket at 9/4.

Tiger is red-hot favourite in the prices, with the nearest opponent in the betting Phil Mickelson, available at 10/1. Again, the Best Price currently available on Lefty.

Following these are Spaniard Sergio Garcia 12/1 and Irishman Padraig Harrington 14/1, neither of whom have had previous victories at Augusta, but do have the form.

Defending champion Trevor Immelman can be backed at 40/1, which may show some each-way potential at 1/4 odds for finishing in the top five, 10/1 for a place.
