Tiger Woods labels steady Masters return 'awesome'

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. He has a two-stroke lead and that included a bogey on the 18 hole. "It's been awesome this entire comeback. I got in in a reasonable score". "They're really into it".

World number 13 Paul Casey, victor of the Valspar Championship last month, had problems on the greens and was three over after seven, before finishing with a 74, the same score as fellow Englishman and world number 17 Tyrell Hatton.

At the par-3 12th, Woods's tee shot landed in Rae's Creek.

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. "I could have easily let it slip away". At the rainy U.S. Open in 2002 at Bethpage, he said officials who made him play on would have stopped play had Woods still been out on the course.

Jordan Spieth's love affair with Augusta National only seems to be gaining steam. Opening with birdies on two of his first three holes, he did stumble a bit - by his standards - before the turn.

And, finally, a one-putt from 10 feet for a 13 on No. 15 that sent golf writers scurrying to the internet to find out what to call it.

He rolled in a nine-footer at 14, and his pitch at 15 left him a four-footer.

"I think this golf course is a lot easier to play if you feel like you can just hit the centre of the greens and move from there and wait for your chances", he said.

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".

Hopes were raised ahead of the Masters after the 42-year-old Woods finished 12th, second and fifth in his last three starts on the PGA Tour and he showed evidence of that improved form with fighting birdies on the 14th and 16th to limit his losses.

Defending champion Garcia endured a nightmare on the par-five 15th as he took 13 shots after hitting his ball into the water on five different occasions.
