After two rounds of play at Augusta National, 1992 champion Fred Couples is one of the co-leaders of the Masters, along with 2011 PGA Championship runner-up Jason Dufner. Based on Dufner's performance in that tournament, he's getting a little bit of respect for the bookies, but there's not a whole lot for 52-year-old Couples.
Masters odds: McIlroy 3-1, Westwood 6-1, Mickelson 8-1, Watson 12-1, Garcia 12-1, Dufner 15-1, Couples 20-1, Woods 40-1 (via @GolfOdds)— RJ Bell (@RJinVegas) April 7, 2012
It's unsurprising that McIlroy is such a heavy favorite, but the fact that his odds are twice as good as Lee Westwood's are telling. Westwood is almost certainly the best active player to never win a major championship. He has 12 top-10 finishes in majors in his career, including six in the last three years.
Tiger Woods wouldn't have odds as good as 40-1 if he was anyone else. He's eight shots off the lead entering Saturday.
