The last two Masters have seen two first-time major winners and, despite the hype surrounding the big guns, this year could be no different.
Colombia's Camilo Villegas has had three top 10 finishes to move to 10th in the world, while Americans Nick Watney and Kenny Perry have both won in 2009.
Of the players seeking to reinforce their status with a second major, 2006 US Open champion Geoff Ogilvy has won twice this year to climb to fourth in the world.
And 2007 Masters winner Zach Johnson is in form, with a victory in Hawaii and third behind Tiger Woods at Bay Hill.
