TIGER WOODS is no longer the favourite to win The Masters – for the first time in 11 years.
The former world No.1 was overtaken in the betting last night by Phil Mickelson who was all the rage last night after winning the Shell Houston Open with a final round 63.
William Hill have installed Mickelson as 15-2 favourite with Woods out to 9-1. Lee Westwood leads the European challenge at 16-1 with world No.1 Martin Kaymer 18-1.
Hills spokesman Rupert Adams said: “Mickelson has as good a record at Augusta as Woods and his 63 in Houston has got people flocking into our shops to to back him.”
