A look at 12 top contenders going into the 77th Masters, to be played April 11-14 at Augusta National Golf Club:

TIGER WOODS

Age: 37

Country: United States

World ranking: 1

Best Masters: Four victories

Why he can win: He has won six times on the PGA Tour in his past 20 starts, and no one is playing better. Woods has won back-to-back tournaments going into the Masters for the first time since 2001. He won a green jacket that year.

RORY MCILROY

Age: 23

Country: Northern Ireland

World ranking: 2

Best Masters: Tie for 15th

Why he can win: Even as he tries to find his swing, his putting has not left him. Adding the Texas Open at the last minute can only accelerate his return to form, and he has all the components to be a Masters champion.

PHIL MICKELSON

Age: 42

Country: United States

World ranking: 10

Best Masters: Three victories
