This is the ninth time he has either held or shared the lead, and the 11th time he has broken par. It's the first time in my career where I make 13 without missing a shot. The man then downed the beer and gave Day his ball back and he would go on and get a bogey for the hole.

It marks the third time in the last four years of the Masters that Spieth has led after day one.

Masters leader Jordan Spieth says he is just "one round down out of six" such is the difficulty of playing at Augusta and is ready to have to grind out victory over the coming days. I'm not going to get ahead of myself. "It's about riding momentum from last week and this round".

Northern Ireland's Rory McIlroy, seeking a fifth major, is among a group of players on three-under-par, alongside Henrik Stenson of Sweden and American Patrick Reed.

Woods, dressed in black, was greeted to loud cheers from the onlookers crammed around the first tee where after acknowledging them with a subtle nod and touch of his visor, went on to hook his opening shot into the trees left of the fairway. But Garcia's tee shot left him just 206 yards to the pin.

"I had looked forward to this week for a really long time", he said, "and to see the possibility of that slipping away ..." "By the end of the week this will be a pretty packed leaderboard the way the golf course is set up". "I happened to venture over to the back right quadrant of 17 today and [there] could be a little potential for iffyness".

Timothy's family stated that he had a conversation with them the day before he vanished, that had left them concerned. The dog, known as Bo, had twice accompanied Cunningham to Harvard, where he earned his master's and doctoral degrees.

"I thought it was flawless", Garcia said. So, basically, he played the 15th hole in 8-over and the other 17 in 1-over. He had three birdies and four bogeys as he struggled with his approach shots and some of his tee shots.

Last year, he who is from Spain reigned, winning his first major title after 74 tries.

"The nerves really were just normal". I wasn't even flying high.

"But I'll always have a tremendous amount of confidence out here".

Garcia added: "I felt like I hit a lot of good shots and unfortunately the ball just didn't want to stop".

Sergio Garcia's day completely fell apart when he rinsed ball after ball after ball after ball after ball - yes, five total - into the water in front of the green at the par-5 15th. Garcia hit his second shot into the Par-5 short in the water.

Golfer Tony Finau appears to dislocate his ankle celebrating hole-in-one
Asked afterward as he walked to the clubhouse at Augusta National how he felt, he only said, "I'm going to get it checked out". THE ANNUAL Par-3 Contest took place at Augusta today ahead of the opening round of the 2018 Masters on Thursday.

But on No. 15 Thursday, in a Masters that could be defined by the crowded and charismatic leaderboards it produces, Garcia and Augusta National engaged in one of their old tussles, the kind - prior to previous year - that the course always won by knockout.

Woods nearly drove the green at the par-4 No. 3, pitched to about 10 feet and made the putt to set off a huge "Tiger Roar" at Augusta National.

Rory Ilroy was delighted with his quick start at the Masters after carding a 69 in his opening round.

The 24-year-old birdied Nos. "I survived", Frittelli said. He was on the driving range Thursday morning and appeared to be walking gingerly. On a scale of 1 to 10, Finau described the pain as a 10.

One day after dislocating his left ankle while celebrating a hole-in-one during the Par 3 Contest - he literally popped it back into place right in the middle of the course - Finau was only two shots off the lead after shooting a 68 in his Masters debut. After making the ace, Finau, whose wife and four children served as his caddy, ran toward the green in celebration. That brings the classy quintet on -2 into it but historically, the plethora of world-class players further back have too much to do, even if some of their odds are very tempting.

When they faced the Pacers a week ago without four of their key players, it was an ugly game that resulted in a win for Indiana. Golden State failed to outscore the Pacers in a single quarter as in built a 22-point lead midway through the third quarter.
