Masters Week is here as the world’s top golfers prepare to compete for the year’s first major. A few of the sport’s top players stand out among the favorites to win the green jacket.

A couple of months ago, Jordan Spieth was viewed as a long shot to win the 2021 Masters. The 27-year-old now is given a better chance to finish atop the leaderboard than most of the field.

After winning the Valero Texas Open Sunday, Spieth’s odds of becoming the 2021 Masters champion have catapulted to +1100 at FanDuel Sportsbook. Only Bryson DeChambeau and Dustin Johnson, who are the co-favorites with +950 odds apiece, enter the tournament with better odds.

Spieth won the 2015 Masters at just 21 years old. Following the 2018 Masters, Spieth had four top-three Masters finishes and three major championships under his belt. The golfer would go winless for nearly four years, finally ending that skid Sunday.

Phil Mickelson is the last golfer to win the Masters after a first-place finish in his previous tournament, doing so in 2006.

Johnson is the reigning Masters champion and the No. 1 ranked player in the world.

No golfer has won back-to-back Masters since Tiger Woods did it in 2001 and 2002.

Woods tied for 38th place last year at Augusta when he tried to defend his improbable 2019 Masters championship. The 15-time major winner won’t be part of this week’s field as he continues to recover from serious injuries he suffered in a car accident.

DeChambeau sits atop the latest 2021 FedExCup standings. Through nine events, DeChambeau has two victories and five finishes in the top 10.

Justin Thomas is tied with Spieth at +1100 odds to win the Masters. Thomas finished fourth at Augusta in November. He has one win and five top-10 finishes this year.

Jon Rahm (+1200), Rory McIlroy (+1900) and Patrick Cantlay (+2000) are considered top contenders for the green jacket. Xander Schauffele (+2500), Brooks Koepka (+2800) and Collin Morikawa (+2900) are the only other golfers with better than 30/1 odds.

Patrick Reed (+3200), the 2018 Masters champion, is next on the list of contenders. With +4900 odds, 2017 Masters champion Sergio Garcia is tied for 24th in the field.

Two-time Masters champion Bubba Watson (+8500) is a long shot to win a third green jacket.
