Do you think Tiger Woods is now the favorite to win the Masters?

Mark Dyer: Tiger has to be the favorite. Unless he hits some bad shots or his Achilles flares up again, he's the front-runner.

Josh Chace: He's won one tournament in 30 months. That doesn't make him the favorite. Sure he played well at Bay Hill, but he's going to have a stronger field to compete against at Augusta.

Pat Rochester Ridout: He hasn't been consistent at all this year, so I'd say no. I'm going with Luke Donald or someone like Justin Rose, who can get hot quickly.

Nicholas Gmeinder: I'll always go with Tiger, especially now that he appears to be fully recovered. If he stays healthy, there is no golfer on the planet who can beat him.

Justin Tucker: I would say yes. His confidence and performance at Bay Hill were the best I have seen from him in quite some time.

Ron Williamson: One win shouldn't make him the favorite over Rory McIlroy, Phil Mickelson or Luke Donald. Tiger's win [on Sunday] will, however, make Augusta interesting.

Will McLean: Of course he is. Even during his losing streak he always played well at the Masters.
