The Masters: 1st Round

Golf

ByTheMinGolf

So you think the best day of the year is Christmas Day or maybe even your Birthday? WRONG its today and always will be! ITS THE 1ST DAY OF THE US MASTERS LIVE FROM AUGUSTA......Woohoo!!!!!

Although better than it used to be those pesky green jackets at ANGC like to limit the coverage of their beloved tournament so currently I'm watching two featured groups who have just teed off - Casey / Kizzire / Matsuyama Tiger / Tommy F / Leishman

Here is the latest leaderboard Old men Vijay and OMeara lead the way

What with Tiger back for the 1st time in 3 years and that leaderboard its like the late 90's all over again!

Tiger has parred his 1st 2 holes just missing a shortish birdie putt on the long par 5 2nd

Leishman made a birdie there (-1) and Fleetwood also parred (E)

The 3rd hole is short 350yard knock up a slight incline and with the flag on the right hand side , Leishman and Woods have driven it perfect up the left so they can pitch back up the hill towards the top half of the green....Clever course management

Weather was a little chilly first thing but warming up to around 70 degrees with just a mere zephyr of a breeze to worry about. Perfect scoring conditions but nobody lighting it up just yet

Vijay bogey at 6 and he's back to -2

Paul Casey a winner recently in Tampa bogies the 4th and is now +1
