Well, that didn’t take long.

The final major of the season only finished over the weekend, but that means the countdown to the 2016 Masters has begun—and odds are already out.

According to, defending champion Jordan Spieth is the man to beat.

Spieth is the favorite with 5/1 odds, but Rory McIlroy is close behind at 6/1. Spieth took over the No. 1 spot from McIlroy in the World Ranking with his second-place finish at the PGA Championship. While Spieth is trying to repeat as champ, a win at Augusta for McIlroy would complete his career grand slam.

PGA champion Jason Day has the third-best odds at 10/1, and Dustin Johnson and two-time Masters winner Bubba Watson are both 15/1.

Tiger Woods is 25/1 to win. Although the 14-time major champ missed the cut at the U.S. Open, British Open and PGA, he did finish T17 at Augusta this year.

Other notables odds: Adam Scott 25/1, Phil Mickelson 30/1, Patrick Reed 50/1, Louis Oosthuizen 50/1, Zach Johnson 60/1 and Martin Kaymer 100/1.

The Masters is April 7-10 at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia.
