Sergio Garcia ties ugly Masters record with 13 shots on single hole

06 April 2018

Sergio Garcia's defence of his Masters title got off to a bad start as he hit a record 13 in opening round at Augusta National after hitting five consecutive shot into the water on the 15th hole.

A crisis-averting bogey save at the final hole gave Spieth a 6-under 66, good for a two-shot lead after the first round of the Masters.

"I felt Sunday-type pressure in the middle of the back nine", he said. There are a lot of holes to be played.

Leishman birdied three of his first seven holes and finished at 3-under-par 69 while playing alongside the main attraction at the first major of 2018. It was only the sixth eagle on the 18th hole at the Masters, and the first since Chris DiMarco in 2006.

On Thursday, he could only manage four pars on the longest holes.

Police Seeking Conor McGregor After Brooklyn Attack, UFC President Confirms
When asked by TMZ whether he'll fire McGregor after this incident, Dana White simply replied, "This is bigger than us firing him". The only person here who is losing a belt is Conor. "Conor is in jail, he's done'" Edwards said in a Thursday afternoon Tweet.

But he has shot in the 60s in the first round only once in 20 prior Masters appearances. "And I missed it in the correct spot, I thought on both par-5s, didn't get them up and down". "For six months I've been off with the putter, not able to trust my reads".

Woods, who is on the comeback trail after undergoing spinal fusion surgery in April and bidding for a fifth Green Jacket, did not set Augusta alight with his opening round but he was happy to be in contention at one-over par. "I only came up here the last couple of years just to have food (at the Champions Dinner)".

Woods' first Masters since 2015 dominated the build-up to the tournament but he failed to produce the fireworks many had hoped for and the former world number one scrapped his way to a one-over 73 to sit four behind the clubhouse leaders. He won in 2015 and finished in a tie for second two other times.

With an expectant gallery looking on, Woods hit his tee shot at the par-four first left into the pine straw but emerged with an opening par. His finishes are, chronologically: T2, 1, T2 and 11th. With 262 yards for his third shot, Spieth pulled that one left of the green. Spieth chipped over the rolling green and had little more than a tap-in for five.

"Otherwise it's just short of the green, an easy up and down from there, where I was trying to leave it, " he said.

Du Plessis made his first major contribution of the series after making only 55 runs in his first seven innings. There was little batting resistance and that only lasted 16.4 overs, adding just 31 runs.

"But unfortunately I flew it on the flawless spot for it to come back and then I kept hitting good shots with a sand-wedge and unfortunately, I don't know why, the ball just didn't stop". "I saw it land, and all of a sudden everyone was standing up and the next thing I know I turn around any my dad (his caddie) is running at full speed, " Ghim said.

"I feel getting off to a good start [Thursday] will allow me to keep that mindset the next few days".

Making the putt, however, helped save the round. "I couldn't get it closer with a bucket of balls".

He dislocated his ankle celebrating a hole-in-one during the Par-3 Tournament on Wednesday and then popped it back into place.
