Why he can win: Mickelson shows more discipline at Augusta than any other major. He manages to contend even when he’s not showing the best of form. Along with his three green jackets, he has six other finishes in the top three.

BUBBA WATSON

Age: 34

Country: United States

World ranking: 14

Best Masters: One victory

Why he can win: He showed last year that “Bubba golf” works just fine at Augusta National. His power and preferred fade are huge for this golf course. And as he said last year, if he has a swing, he has a shot.

BRANDT SNEDEKER

Age: 32

Country: United States

World ranking: 5

Best Masters: Tie for third in 2008

Why he can win: He knows he can contend based on his play in 2008. His driving is vastly improved. If the putter gets going and he’s hitting it reasonably well, look out.

LOUIS OOSTHUIZEN

Age: 30

Country: South Africa

World ranking: 6

Best Masters: Runner-up in 2012
