There is no shortage of star power at this year's Masters tournament: Rory McIlroy, who has won the three other major championships but not a green jacket, is considered one of the favorites; Dustin Johnson, the 2016 U.S. Open champion, could prove formidable; three-time major winner and 25-year-old golf prodigy Jordan Spieth is hungry for a second green jacket; and last year's Masters champion Patrick Reed is looking to repeat.

Previous Masters champions and veteran fan-favorites Tiger Woods, Sergio Garcia, Phil Mickelson and Jose Maria Olazabal will all be participating in the tournament, aiming to capture past glory.
