This happens every year. I cried during the ceremonial start of the Masters as Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer teed off.
Retief Goosen eagled the first hole, a par-4 with a hole out. After four holes he’s now at -4, tied with Ross Fisher who just got up and down from the front bunker on the par-3 12th. The two leaders at -4 are nicknamed Fish and Goose.
Rory McIlroy is off to a good start at -3 after five holes.
Jonathan Byrd is at +1 after 12. Just laid up on #13. His putting peed seems to be a little strong.
For those who can hit the green on #12, it is soft and receptive.
Tiger Woods hit the fairway on #1 with a 3-wood and made par. Even par going into #2.
Players not faring well early include Ben Crenshaw at +5 after 10, Mark O’Meara at +3 after 9.
