Following his recent victory in the Chevron World Challenge , Tiger Woods is now favourite to win the 2012 US Masters at Augusta.

Former World No.1 , Woods broke a career-long winless streak of 107 weeks when winning the Chevron World Challenge earlier this month. Woods had shown signs of a return to form in November when leading the Australian Open for a while before eventually finishing third.

Bookmakers are taking no chances with Tiger for the 2012 Masters with the best odds available only  11/2 with Betfred. Woods has endured a torrid time since the much publicised break up of his marriage in 2009 and this year has had more injury problems with his knee and ankle. However the four time Masters winner is more determined than ever to win another Major and he is sure to perform well at Augusta next year.

Woods will face fierce competition at Augusta from second favourite Rory McIlroy who was four shots clear going in to the last day of this years Masters only to blow up with a final round of 80. However McIlroy quickly made amends with an amazing win at the US Open in June , winning by eight shots.McIlroy is currently available at odds of 8/1 with Betfred and Victor Chandler.

Also in contention for the 2012 US Masters is Lee Westwood currently streets ahead in the Thailand Open , Westwood remains one of the world's most consistent golfers and is available at odds of 16/1 with Paddy Power.   

The 2012 US Masters starts on the 5th April 2012 and promises to be one of the most competitive for years.
