The 2013 major golf championship season is in the books which means we have 241 days (gosh, that's a long time) until the 2014 Masters gets underway.

As you well know it's never too early to start thinking about next year.

Here are the 2014 Masters odds:


Tiger Woods: 6-1

Other favorites

Rory McIlroy: 12-1
Phil Mickleson: 12-1
Adam Scott: 16-1

Fringe favorites

Justin Rose: 25-1
Brandt Snedeker: 28-1
Jason Day: 28-1
Charl Schwartzel: 33-1
Lee Westwood: 33-1
Luke Donald: 33-1
Dustin Johnson: 33-1

The rest

Keegan Bradley: 40-1
Louis Oosthuizen: 40-1
Matt Kuchar: 40-1
Bubba Watson: 40-1
Sergio Garcia: 40-1
Angel Cabrera: 50-1

Jason Day at 28-1 is insane to me. He should at least be 25-1 given that he has two top-three finishes at Augusta in the last three years.

On the other hand, Tiger at 6-1 seems a little much. I know that lines are more conservative the further out from the tournament that they're posted, and I know he was a flagstick on No. 15 from probably winning this season, but it feels like he should be more like 8-1.

I like that McIlroy seems like he has a little swagger back -- I think 12-1 for him and Mickelson is fair.

I'll also take a flyer on Kuchar at 40-1. He usually plays this tournament well.

Oh, by the way, anybody have a time machine that is capable of processing 241 days in say, a week?
