Odds: [14.0] Last five Masters: 3/27/1/5/5 Were it not for a bizarre triple-bogey during last year's final round, Mickelson may well have landed a fourth Masters title and there's a temptation to assume he won't get many more chances. At 42, Phil is bidding to become the oldest Masters winner since Ben Crenshaw in 1995, but on recent evidence there should be no questioning his ability to defy the ageing process. Although consistency is a problem nowadays, third place at Doral plus a third Phoenix Open title demonstrated that Lefty remains a major player on his favourite courses. Nowhere on earth suits Mickelson more than Augusta, where he's rewarded top-five finish backers no fewer than ten times. History suggests he's a near certainty to trade at shorter odds in-running.
