Can anyone pip Tiger to a fifth Masters title? We runs the rule over the contenders who could be slipping into the fabled Green Jacket

Who's going to win the 71st Masters? Of course, if we knew the answer we'd all be very rich. All we can tell you is that the history of the Masters is littered with classy champions. This, perhaps more than any other Major, seems to sort the men from the boys, and almost always produces a winner from the higher echelons of the game.

On the following pages we line up the players who we think have the best chance of winning this year's event. We have sorted them into three groups of five: the obvious "Favourites", the "Contenders" ? those classy players who, given the right set of circumstances, could turn on the magic and grab the famous Green Jacket ? and the leading "Europeans". Could one of the Continentals finally break the Major drought?
