What an amazing first day at The Masters!
Jonathan Byrd, Ross Fisher and Sean O’Hair got things underway and set up a memorable day’s golf, at the end of which Northern Ireland’s Rory McIlroy had hit a stunning 65 (seven under) as had Spaniard Alvaro Quiros for a share of a two-shot lead after the first round.
South Korean pair Yang Yong-Eun and KJ Choi are two shots behind after impressive 67’s.
American duo Matt Kuchar (one of my tips) and Ricky Barnes are hanging in there at four under with England’s Ross Fisher and Spain’s Sergio Garcia in a group on three under alongside Gary Woodland, Brandt Snedeker, Charl Schwartzel,2008 Masters champion Trevor Immelman and 2006 US Open winner Geoff Ogilvy.
Defending champion (and another of my tips) Phil Mickelson ended two under, while Tiger Woods went round just one under par Lee Westwood on par.
