Tiger may be out, but the showdown at Augusta National will still offer some of the best drama in all of sports. The odds are in Rory McIlroy's favor, but anything can happen in Georgia – and frequently does. Here are the 10 players to watch if you're looking for excitement. Whether or not they end up sliding into the green jacket, these guys will definitely put on a show.
Day excels at almost winning the Masters. In 2011, he finished second to Charl Schwartzel and he took third last year. This year, the Aussie has won the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship – after an epic playoff battle with Victor Dubuisson – and finished second at the Farmers Insurance Open. Given that he's only started three events, that's not bad. Currently fourth in the World Golf Rankings, Day was forced to withdraw from the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship due to an injured thumb and took the last six weeks off from the tour. If time has healed his wounds and his form is where he left it in February, Day could find himself not only wearing a Green Jacket but also trying on a new title: World Number One.
