And even though McIlroy still has one tournament and a full month to go before the 2012 Masters, you can’t blame him and everyone else for looking forward and envisioning the potentially legendary battle that these two could have at Augusta. As it stands McIlroy and Woods are listed 4/1 and 13/2 to win the Masters respectively. Continue reading
