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.
The two-time Masters champ may be a little rusty. Watson has only started in three tournaments this year on the Champions Tour and only played in eight last year. He may have zero expectation of winning, but it's always a joy to watch him play for the love of the game (or sponsorship money). Whatever the reason for his appearance, Watson draws a loyal crowd and is known as one of the luckiest players in golf. Earlier this year, at the opening round of the 2014 Toshiba Classic, Watson hit a backhanded, blind chip within a foot of the hole. Perhaps he can uncork a little more of that magic at Augusta.
