|1. Rory McIlroy|
Note: Coming off T7 at Houston Open and possesses all the shots to contend at Augusta. Never better than T15, but led through 54 holes in 2011.
|2. Phil Mickelson|
Note: An even bigger favorite this year without Tiger, Lefty has a decorated record at the Masters, including 10 top-5s and three green jackets.
|3. Adam Scott|
Note: Defending Masters champ faltered a few weeks ago on Sunday but he's in solid form and produced three top-5 finishes in majors last year.
|4. Matt Kuchar|
Note: Knocking on the door the last two weeks, came up empty but is in excellent form. Major is the only thing missing from his impressive resume. T8 last year, T3 in previous two.
|5. Lee Westwood|
Note: Majorless at 40, Westwood is overdue. Strong record at Augusta with five top-11s in the last six years, coming close to a green jacket in 2010, 2012.
|6. Keegan Bradley|
Note: 2011 PGA champ is in solid form with seven top-20s this season. Hits towering iron shots that come in handy on the tricky Augusta National green complexes.
|7. Justin Rose|
Note: First Masters start as a major champion after breakthrough at 2013 U.S. Open. His last two starts on tour were a top-10, MC.
|8. Bubba Watson|
Note: 2012 Masters champ won the Northern Trust Open and has plenty of length to score on the reachable par-5s at Augusta.
|9. Sergio Garcia|
Note: Third at the Houston Open, leads the PGA Tour in scoring average at 69.3. Hard to ignore that Sergio's last four wins have been without Tiger in the field, so this could be his chance.
|10. Jason Dufner|
Note: Last year's PGA champ has been in the top-30 at the Masters in all three of his starts but has not been close on Sunday. Comes in under the radar with top-10s in both WGC events.
|11. Charl Schwartzel|
Note: 2011 Masters is Schwartzel's only PGA Tour win but his ballstriking prowess is especially attractive at Augusta. Made the cut all four appearances but no strong finishes other than his win three years ago.
|12. Brandt Snedeker|
Note: Contended last year but struggled on Sunday. Nice history at Augusta, most recently T8 at the Arnold Palmer so he's in solid form.
|13. Jason Day|
Note: Hasn't played a competitive golf round since win at WGC-Matchplay due to a thumb injury, but top-3 at the Masters in each of his first two appearance. High risk/high reward.
|14. Luke Donald|
Note: Inconsistent this season and outside a few nice finishes at Augusta has a fairly pedestrian record at the Masters given his high world ranking.
|15. Ian Poulter|
Note: Made cut at the Masters in last five appearances with T13 best finish. Still searching for first major but has grit and game to get it done, especially without Tiger in the field.
|16. Hunter Mahan|
Note: Contender in two majors last season, still searching for first major. Three missed cuts, three top-12 finishes at Augusta his last six appearances.
|17. Dustin Johnson|
Note: Withdrew last week with back injury after first-round 80 but otherwise has plenty of upside with his length at Augusta. Five top-6s this season. T13 at last year's Masters.
|18. Louis Oosthuizen|
Note: The odd man out in the 2012 Masters playoff, Oosthuizen enters with poor form but has the game to quickly turn things around.
|19. Henrik Stenson|
Note: Spotty lately and no top-10s at the Masters, but the defending FedEx Cup champ played extremely well in majors last season and is capable of competing at any venue.
|20. Graeme McDowell|
Note: McDowell is leading the PGA Tour in strokes gained putting and is second in scoring average this season. Has never really contended at the Masters but has many great finishes in majors and is a proven champion.
|21. Angel Cabrera|
Note: Former Masters champion narrowly missed his second green jacket after losing to Adam Scott in playoff last year. Six top-10s at Augusta, a proven major winner who always seems under the radar.
|22. Nick Watney|
Note: Decent record at Augusta but has struggled mightily with no top-10s this season.
|23. Zach Johnson|
Note: 2007 Masters champ had great start to 2013-14 but must be perfect with wedge play to have a chance.
|24. Patrick Reed|
Note: Although no first-timer has won the Masters since 1979 (Fuzzy Zoeller), Reed perhaps has the best chance to do it again as he has three impressive wins since last August and plays a stock draw necessary on many holes at Augusta.
|25. Rickie Fowler|
Note: Fowler has two strong finishes this season with one as recent as last week's Shell Houston Open. Has made the cut each of the last three years and will look to make it four this year.
|26. Bill Haas|
Note: Great driver and has strung together eight top-25 this season, but has never truly contended at Augusta.
|27. Jim Furyk|
Note: Furyk lacks the clubhead speed to really take advantage of the par-5s at Augusta but has four career top-10s here, his closest a 4th in 2003.
|28. Martin Kaymer|
Note: Struggled since winning a major in 2010 and has made just two of six cuts at the Masters, never finishing better than T35.
|29. Steve Stricker|
Note: Just two top-10s at Augusta in 13 appearances and is struggling this season in his second year on a reduced schedule.
|30. Ernie Els|
Note: The Big Easy had a great run at the Masters from 2000-2004 but hasn't been inside the top-10 since.
|31. Jordan Spieth|
Note: First Master after earning invite with his maiden victory last season. Tough to see a first-timer winning, but he's in solid form with four top-10s this season so he could post a nice finish.
|32. Webb Simpson|
Note: Just two starts at Augusta (T44, MC) and has yet to prove himself on the hallowed grounds of Augusta.
|33. Peter Hanson|
Note: Led the Masters on Sunday in 2012 but succumbed to Amen Corner to finish T3. Great driver but has little history other than that near miss.
|34. Harris English|
Note: Just 24 and two PGA Tour wins to his name, English is an emerging star making his first Masters appearance. Leads PGA Tour in GIR percentage at 73.03.
|35. K.J. Choi|
Note: Runner-up at Torrey Pines this year and has been in the mix at Augusta before, but at age 43 time is running out for the South Korean.
|36. Graham DeLaet|
Note: Yet to win on the PGA Tour but has multiple runner-ups this season and played extremely well at the President's Cup late last year.
|37. Hideki Matsuyama|
Note: Only 22 but posted three top-20s in majors last season. This is his third start at Augusta despite not qualifying last year. Keep an eye on the budding Japanese sensation.
|38. Francesco Molinari|
Note: Great ballstriker but history at Augusta has seen him miss two cuts and never finish better than T19.
|39. Thorbjorn Olesen|
Note: Young Dane was T6 at last year's Masters, and at 24 has plenty of upside to play well in the pressure-packed majors. One to keep an eye on.
|40. Ryan Moore|
Note: Moore was Low Amateur in the 2005 Masters but has only managed to qualify three times since. Never missed a cut here but has never contended.
|41. Gary Woodland|
Note: More than enough length to dominate par-5s at Augusta but just two career Masters starts (T24, WD).
|42. Russell Henley|
Note: Won Honda Classic a month ago and comes off top-10 at Houston Open. Missed cut at his first Masters last year but is a year wiser and in better form.
|43. Matteo Manassero|
Note: Caught the eye of patrons as a 16-year-old in 2010 with T36 as low amateur but missed cut last year in his second appearance. Plenty of game but lacks experience.
|44. Branden Grace|
Note: T18 in his first Masters start last year but relatively unproven in major championships.
|45. Scott Stallings|
Note: Won Farmers Insurance Open in a heated battle down the stretch, making second Masters start.
|46. D.A. Points|
Note: Third Masters start in 2014, Points is struggling with three MC in a row leading up to this week.
|47. Jimmy Walker|
Note: Walker is in the midst of a breakthrough year with three wins, making his maiden voyage to Augusta.
|48. Fred Couples|
Note: Charismatic Couples is a green jacket owner and has been inside the top-15 in each of his last four Masters, but at 54 there is little fuel left in the major tank.
|49. Stephen Gallacher|
Note: First Masters start for Scotland native who won prestigious Dubai Desert Classic in back-to-back years.
|50. David Lynn|
Note: Runner-up at 2012 PGA, Lynn is a late bloomer at 40. Plenty of game, but not enough experience at Augusta quite yet.
|51. Sang-Moon Bae|
Note: T37 in his first Masters in 2012 and will make his second appearance in 2014.
|52. Miguel Angel Jimenez|
Note: Solid record at Augusta with three top-10s but has now breached age 50, so upside might be limited.
|53. Victor Dubuisson|
Note: Pounced onto the scene with runner-up at WGC-Matchplay. Incredible short game that will come in handy on the tight lies of Augusta.
|54. Stewart Cink|
Note: Game has been erratic last few years, but T3 in 2008, so no stranger to playing well at the Masters.
|55. Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano|
Note: Impressed in his second Masters start last year with a solid T20 finish, so it will be interesting to see how the Spaniard follows that this year.
|56. Chris Kirk|
Note: Masters first-timer and is playing in just his fifth major championship.
|57. Billy Horschel|
Note: T4 at last year's U.S. Open, making his first Masters appearance.
|58. Boo Weekley|
Note: Has not made a Masters field since 2009 when he missed cut.
|59. Jamie Donaldson|
Note: Missed cut in his first Masters last year but in good form with a runner-up at the WGC-Cadillac Championship last month.
|60. Marc Leishman|
Note: Contended last year on the strength of a great putter and was top-15 at the PGA Championship as well, so could definitely turn a corner this year if he gets into the mix.
|61. Vijay Singh|
Note: Decorated Masters record includes green jacket in 2000 but has slowly declined since 2007, now 51.
|62. Y.E. Yang|
Note: Spotty Masters results but was T8 in 2010 and is major champion. Should not be overlooked.
|63. Jonas Blixt|
Note: First Masters appearance. Was T26 in his first ever major last year at the Open Championship and finished fourth at the PGA, so plenty of upside for the young Swede.
|64. Thomas Bjorn|
Note: Bjorn has a porous record at Augusta and is 43. Time is running out for the veteran Dane.
|65. John Senden|
Note: Won Valspar Championship at tough Innisbrook just a month ago. Known for great ballstriking, which is imperative at the Masters.
|66. Matt Every|
Note: Surprised golf world with a signature first win at Bay Hill three weeks ago to stamp his ticket to Augusta.
|67. Matt Jones|
Note: Dramatic winner of last week's Houston Open to earn the last spot in the Masters field.
|68. Brendon de Jonge|
Note: 33-year-old from Zimbabwe is a solid ballstriker but has zero experience at Augusta.
|69. Tim Clark|
Note: South African has seen rollercoaster results at Augusta with five top-15s, five MCs since 2003. A wild card again this year.
|70. Joost Luiten|
Note: First start at the Masters and has played just four majors in his career.
|71. Darren Clarke|
Note: 2011 Open champion is aging and has only contended once at Augusta (in 1998).
|72. Roberto Castro|
Note: First Masters for the Georgia native, so keep expectations in check.
|73. John Huh|
Note: T11 at first Masters last year, but this year is coming in with poor form.
|74. Kevin Stadler|
Note: First Masters appearance after winning Phoenix Open, joining father Craig for the first time at Augusta.
|75. Lucas Glover|
Note: 2009 U.S. Open champion has never come close at Augusta. Keep your distance.
|76. Trevor Immelman|
Note: Won the Masters in 2008 but has done very little, if anything, since.
|77. Steven Bowditch|
Note: Recent winner at Texas Open but missed cut last week at Houston Open. First-timer at Augusta.
|78. Kevin Streelman|
Note: Won for first time last season but has never made cut at the Masters.
|79. Thongchai Jaidee|
Note: 44-year-old has never made the cut here so keep clear of the veteran Thai player.
|80. Mike Weir|
Note: Struggled at the Masters since winning playoff in 2003. Missed last three cuts here. Avoid the lefty.
|81. Derek Ernst|
Note: First Masters after earning his way in with a win at Quail Hollow last year.
|82. Ken Duke|
Note: Won 2013 Travelers Championship to earn an invitation but is 45 and playing in just his second Masters.

|87. Matthew Fitzpatrick-A|
Note: Low amateur at 2013 Open Championship and will tee it up at Augusta for the first time.
|88. Michael McCoy-A|
Note: A feel good story, won the U.S. Mid-Amateur title at age 50 to earn a berth in the Masters.
|89. Garrick Porteous-A|
Note: Won the British Amateur to join fellow UT teammate Oliver Goss in the Masters this year.
|90. Bernhard Langer|

|91. Ben Crenshaw|
Note: Another player well past his prime, Crenshaw hasn't contended since his win in 1995.
|92. Ian Woosnam|
Note: 1991 Masters champ has made the cut just once since 2001.
|93. Larry Mize|
Note: Green jacket owner from 1987 hasn't contended since the mid-90s.

Note: Late bloomer who won first major at 41, O'Meara is now 57 and hasn't made a Masters cut since 2005.
|95. Sandy Lyle|
Note: Other than his 1988 triumph at Augusta, Lyle has never truly contended here.
|96. Tom Watson|
Note: At 64, Watson is oldest in the field making it all the less likely he can keep up with the young guns.
|97. Craig Stadler|
Note: Joining his son Kevin as the first father-son duo to play in the same Masters.
