Both golfers are among the favorites to win the tournament, but in a head-to-head matchup, the two are considered equals.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book SPORTSBETTING.com, Padraig Harrington has a money line of -115 against Westwood, who also has a line of -115. Here is a look at both golfers heading into this tournament, which takes place from Augusta National in August, Georgia and begins on Thursday.

Padraig Harrington -115:
Harrington has never won the Masters but has three major championships to his credit. Harrington has finished in the top 10 in two of the last three Masters. He finished 35th in 2009 while finishing fifth in 2008 and seventh in 2007. The last time Harrington missed the cut in the Masters was in 2005. Harrington ranks 10th in the world currently and has finished in the top 10 of two tournaments in 2010. He has missed one cut this year in seven tournaments.
 
Lee Westwood -115:
Westwood has never won the Masters or a major championship. He has just one top-10 finish at Augusta, which came in 1999. Westwood placed 43rd in 2009 and 11th in 2008. He failed to play or make the cut in this tournament from 2003-06. Westwood currently ranks fourth in the world rankings as he has finished in the top 10 in 16 of his last 21 tournaments, which includes two victories. In 2010, West Wood has made all but one cut and finished in the top 10 in four of seven events.

Who will win: Both golfers have played some of the best golf in their careers over the last handful of years. Harrington has better history at August while Westwood has played better golf recently. Still, Augusta is another animal and Westwood’s history of struggling at this course leans us toward Harrington as he also has the experience of winning major championships to get him through a rough stretch during the weekend.
