Spieth keeps up awesome Augusta form

Spieth keeps up awesome Augusta form

"The first few holes I just hit it everywhere you can't hit it", said Spieth, who had led or shared the lead after nine of his previous 17 rounds in the Masters.

Only previous year, Woods said he had trouble just sitting through the dinner at the Masters Club of past champions because of pain from his lower back shooting down his legs.

In Tiger's four wins at the Masters - 1997, 2001, 2002 and 2005 - he has opened with rounds of 70, 70, 70 and 74, respectively.

Kuchar opened on 68 but took bogey at the fifth.

McIlroy bounced back from a three-putt bogey at the first to hole from 30 feet for birdie at the second before converting a close-range pitch to the next, although he came unstuck at the fourth and sixth holes to slip to two under. He chose to tee off on No. 1 with a 3-wood instead of a driver, heeding the advice of his wife (and former caddie), Justine.

How will Tiger make out in Round 2?

Woods's round began with a pummeled drive that ran 340 yards up the first fairway.

Summing up the day, Shubhankar said "the putter did not work on the front nine and approach (shots did not work) on the back nine". After a lengthy search to find his ball, Woods took a drop and punched the follow-up shot into a bunker where, to his credit, he got up and down.

Woods misses the 25-footer from the fringe on the right side and taps in for a bogey.

The four-time Masters champion returned to the marquee event after missing the last two years with lingering back problems. He's hoping that changes today, beginning on the second. The Spaniard and new father hit five consecutive balls into the water at the par-5 15th - four of them from less than 100 yards out and with a sand wedge in his hands. He was forced to lay up - not a big deal on the par 5. At the third, he almost drove the green and hit a nice chip that rolled out to 7 feet but missed the birdie putt.

It was a decent finish by Spieth, though, who birdied the par fives on the way home to get back to four under for the tournament, which was the joint-best score in the clubhouse alongside Rory McIlroy, however Patrick Reed was three shots clear at eight under halfway through his round. The birdie try slips by the right edge and it's a par. It added to a 6-under 66 and a two-shot lead over Leishman going into the weekend at Augusta National. His second shot squirted right and into the gallery he just repositioned. "For the most part, I was hitting it into good spots". Among leading players from first day, Tony Finau dropped from 4-under to 2-under after nine and McIlroy was down from 3-under to 2-under after getting to 4-under at one stage. It looks like he'll have some trouble with some bushes for his third. And then he fired an 8-iron at the pin on the par-3 16th, letting the club twirl through his hands as he walked away, knowing only that it was another good one.

"I'm still in this golf tournament", Spieth said. "The biggest thing is execute and give myself an opportunity to make birdies and roll in some putts".

Jordan Spieth delivered one of his best performances by hitting 6-under-par to be on top of the Masters 2018 leaderboard after Round 1.

Tiger executes his delicate chip shot beautifully and knocks down a 3-footer for par. "So far this week, I've been able to do that".

Leishman's second round was capped with an eagle on the par-5 15th hole. I need a lot of help but I need to go and do my job and shoot in the 60s both days.

No hole at Augusta National has treated Garcia so well in the past.
