Rory McIlroy came into the 2011 US Masters with odds of 18/1 of winning.  After Day One, he led the pack.

"I think that you're always going to be nervous teeing it up in a Major Championship," said McIlroy. "It's very natural and it's a good thing. It means that you want it. But I feel like...I've practiced and I've prepared myself for this week."

Alvaro Quiros, a 28-year-old Spaniard listed among the “field” options at Bookmaker.com, placed second.   

Y.E. Yang placed third after Day One.  He was also listed among the “field” options.

Kyung Ju Choi came in 4th with odds of 60/1 to win the Tournament and a very lucrative payout for gamblers backing him should he do so. 

One of the favorites to win with +825 odds coming into Thursday’s play, Tiger Woods, sat among the bottom 30.

"I would rather be where Rory's at," Woods said. "But, hey, it's a long way to go. We have a long grind ahead of us. The temperature is supposed to warm up and I'm sure they will start making the pins a little more difficult as the week goes on. I'm right there in the ballgame. I'm only six back, and as I said, we've got a lot of golf ahead of us."
