2012 Masters Odds: Oddsmakers Show Little Faith In 52-Year-Old Fred Couples

The third round of the 2012 Masters is set to tee off Saturday morning, with veteran Fred Couple tied atop the leaderboard with Jason Dufner, with both golfers 5-under par for the tournament.

Couples lofty perch on the leaderboard has not however made him the odds-on favorite to win the tournament, which is not really surprising when you consider the 52-year-old's competition entering the weekend at Augusta. Via @RJinVegas and @GolfOdds:

Dufner, the runner-up at the 2011 PGA Championship, is even granering more favor currently with oddsmakers. These odds seem to indicate that folks believe Lee Westwood will finally win a major, perhaps this weekend. Tiger Woods, eight back of the leaders, is only 40-1 because his name is Tiger Woods.
