As the first of the season's four major championships, the Masters has always been the most keenly anticipated, a veritable golfing "rite of spring" that brings together the game's leading players in Augusta, Georgia.Mickelson has won three times at Augusta National, most recently in 2010, but his preparations for the year's opening major were rocked when he pulled out of last week's Texas Open during the third round with a pulled abdominal muscle.The last seven editions have produced seven different champions, and golf's extraordinary depth of talent has been showcased on the 2013-14 PGA Tour where there have been 17 different winners from the 20 tournaments so far completed.Australian Bowditch came into the event ranked 339th in the world but survived a windswept final round with a four-over-par 76 at the TPC San Antonio to clinch his first victory on the U.S. circuit.Though Scott has not triumphed since, he has recorded three top 10s in his last five PGA Tour starts and will tee off in Thursday's opening round at Augusta National among the title favorites.
