Tiger Woods is back at the Masters for the first time since 2015, and many fans will watch every shot he takes as he searches for his first major since the 2008 U.S. Open.

He’ll have plenty of challengers, however, as golf’s elite players are all healthy and competing for a green jacket.Here’s a look at the Masters schedule, live-stream information and some notes on a few golfers to watch before the 72nd edition of this storied tournament gets underway Thursday.

Players to Watch

Tiger Woods

Fourteen-time major winner Woods stayed off the course for the better part of the past three years as he endured numerous back issues and surgeries, but he’s is back and looking like his old self after a second-place finish at the Valspar Championship and a fifth-place result in the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Naturally, Woods’ performance is the No. 1 storyline heading into the Masters (and for the whole golf year, really). He and Rory McIlroy currently have the best odds (9-1) to win the tournament, per OddsShark.

Phil Mickelson

Phil Mickelson broke a five-year winless streak with a playoff victory over Justin Thomas at the WGC-Mexico Championship, which has been the highlight of a stellar 2018 campaign so far. Lefty also took second at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am and fifth at the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

Mickelson has won the Masters three times and finished in the top 10 an eye-popping 14 times since 1995. Don’t be surprised if Woods and Mickelson turn back the clock and party like it’s 1999 on Sunday.

Bubba Watson

Continuing the lefty trend, Bubba Watson is a two-time Masters winner who is also in top form after an off-year in 2017. The bomber dominated the WGC-Dell Match Play tournament, going undefeated in group play before knocking out four opponents in the playoff bracket. That marked Watson’s second 2018 win, as he also took down the Genesis Open.Given Watson’s form and course success, we could be seeing the left-hander earn a third jacket.

Notable Names Without Major Wins

Jon Rahm, Rickie Fowler, Paul Casey, Hideki Matsuyama and Tommy Fleetwood lead the list of top-echelon golfers searching for their first major win. The guess here is that Casey has the best shot to win his first major on Sunday, as the 40-year-old hasn’t finished worse than sixth in Augusta in the past three years.

The other four golfers could certainly make Sunday runs, though. Of note, keep an eye on Fleetwood, who ranks fifth overall in strokes gained tee to green. If he gets hot with the putter, then Fleetwood could be in for a great weekend.

Bryson DeChambeau

Twenty-four-year-old Bryson DeChambeau was the low amateur at the 2016 Masters and was just one shot back of the lead on Friday before a triple bogey on his last hole. He still finished a respectable five-over 293 (tied for 21st) in a year where only six golfers finished under par.

DeChambeau has two top-five finishes this calendar year, taking fifth at the Phoenix Open and earning second behind McIlroy at the Arnold Palmer Invitational.A loaded Masters field will be a tough challenge for DeChambeau, but if he golfs like he did at those two aforementioned events, then he could find himself in strong contention on Sunday.

Charley Hoffman

Charley Hoffman hasn’t won any majors and only finished top 10 in them twice, but he’s performed well at the Masters each of the past three years.If not for Jordan Spieth’s 14-under performance through two rounds in 2015, the 41-year-old would have been the leader heading into the weekend.

Hoffman finished tied for 29th in 2016, and he was tied for the lead going into Saturday in 2017. He fell out of contention and finished 22nd, but that marked three straight top-30 Masters results.
