The American, who won the Masters in 2015 at just 21 years of age, but threw the tournament away the following year with a calamitous back nine, leads by two shots.

Finau nonchalantly popped his ankle back into place - "I saw where it was", he said, "and I saw where it needed to be" - and then made a few wobbly steps before signaling for the rest of his family. "Unfortunately people ran out and it clipped them". Still, it looked like he was about to get in the right direction as his 6-iron second shot from 206 yards sailed over the pond and onto the green.

Among the men breathing down Spieth's neck is Rory McIlroy, who produced superb par saves at the 16th and 17th holes to break 70 in the opening round for only the second time in ten attempts. But his fourth shot left him a tap-in.
"I'll always have demons out here, but I'll always have a tremendous amount of confidence", Spieth said. "Sometimes that happens, and most of the time it doesn't".
Finau was injured celebrating a hole-in-one during the Par-3 Contest on Wednesday.
Woods's return to the Masters after a two-year absence due to multiple spinal operations was well received by the fans, who gave him a standing ovation when he appeared on the range for his warm-up session.
Spieth endured no such trouble as he produced a calm display and recorded five consecutive birdies on the back nine.
This year's field is as open as ever with 2015 victor Jordan Spieth, world No 1 Dustin Johnson, Bubba Watson and Rory McIlroy - looking for a maiden Masters victory to claim the career Grand Slam - among the many strong contenders.
Hadwin was tied for the clubhouse lead with Sweden's Henrik Stenson and Americans Charley Hoffman and Patrick Reed. "I had good numbers though, numbers where I could hit nice full shots and that makes a difference".
