The 2013 US Masters tournament is going to be getting underway in just a couple of days.

There is great deal of intrigue heading into this year's Masters tournament, and most of that intrigue has been sparked by the recent resurgence of Tiger Woods. Tiger Woods has just regained his #1 ranking in the world after a lengthy period of time out of the top spot and seems to be firing on all cylinders once again. Tiger's game is back, and the rest of the golfing world is officially on notice.

Tiger has won a number of tournaments in recent months, but the big question now is - when will he win another major?

According to the oddsmakers, Tiger Woods has, by far, the best odds of winning the Masters next weekend.

According to the bookmakers, Tiger is currently listed at +300 to win the Masters. That means that a successful $100 bet on Tiger Woods to win would generate a total profit of $300.

Now, let's compare those odds to the next closest competitor, Rory McIlroy. As of this moment, McIlroy is currently listed at +800 to win the Masters, which means that a successful $100 wager on McIlroy would yield a total profit of $800.

Now, let's take a look at the rest of the players that bookmakers feel have the best shot of winning this event:

Phil Mickelson, +1000
Justin Rose, +2000
Charl Schwartzel, +2000
Adam Scott, +2800
Louis Oosthuizen, +2800
Dustin Johnson, +2800
Brandt Snedeker, +2800
Lee Westwood, +2800

So, if you wanted to put $100 down on Brandt Snedeker to win the Masters, a successful bet would yield you a total profit of $2,800.

Some of the more notable players and their odds:

Bubba Watson, +3300
Padraig Harrington, +5500
Ernie Els, +10000
Vijay Singh, +15000

Can Tiger Woods come all the way back and win his first major in years, or will somebody else win the green jacket this year?
