AUGUSTA, Ga. -- I could use this space to pontificate about what it takes to contend at the Masters Tournament, theorizing about what type of players will find the most success and touting the attributes of potential champions.

I could do all of that ... but I have a feeling you've already scrolled down to see where I've ranked Tiger Woods.

Hey, that's OK. I probably would have done the same thing if I were in your spikes.

Well, now that you've gotten a sneak peek, might as well check out my entire ranking of this year's Masters field. And for those who haven't scrolled, well, you won't need to go too far to find Tiger's name -- but it's below a few other worthy competitors on this list.
