The 2012 Masters Tournament begins on Thursday. Will Tiger Woods collect another jacket for his ever-growing wardrobe, or will a newcomer usurp the star?

The 2012 Masters Tournament:

Tiger Woods (4/1) and Rory McIlroy (5/1) come in with the strongest odds according to Las Vegas Sports Betting, followed next by the great Phil Mickelson (11/1).

For Illinois residents, Luke Donald -- an English-born graduate of Northwestern University -- enters with a solid chance for a win. His 16/1 odds put him in a tie with Lee Westwood for the fourth-best chance in the tournament. Steve Stricker (40/1) and Mark Wilson (175/1), both Illinois natives, enter with outside shots at the Green Jacket, but until the tournament begins, everyone has equal footing.

The Masters practice rounds begin Monday, April 2, with the first round beginning Thursday.
