Being able to play pain free has allowed Woods to be considered the favorite, according to Vegas, of winning the Masters. There are certain players that just get along with Augusta National year after year.

He says, "That was the difference in the round". Reed was determined to get off to a good start without becoming too aggressive.

"I played in a major championship again", said Woods, who just last September, while recovering from spinal fusion surgery, admitted his days of competitive golf may be over.

Bubba Watson, a two-time Masters champion, won at Riviera. And he never got back to par, losing even more ground around Amen Corner.

"The first real Masters I watched was 1997, when he won his first", Fleetwood, 27, recalled. He made a 10-foot putt - close to the same length of his eagle putt when he won previous year - to make a 13, the highest score ever recorded on No. 15.

Defending champion Sergio Garcia and 2016 victor Danny Willett missed the 36-hole cut.

The largest 36-hole comeback at the Masters was Jack Burke Jr. rallying from eight shots down to beat Ken Venturi in 1956, and only because the amateur soared to an 80 on the final day.

Tom Weiskopf had a 13 at No. 12 in 1980 and Tsuneyuki "Tommy" Nakajima did it at No. 13 in 1978.

He's also 13 shots off the lead, which didn't seem to matter.

Summing up the first day, he said, "The putter did not work on the front nine and approach (shots did not work) on the back nine".

Sergio Garcia's title defence effectively came to an embarrassing end as he took an wonderful 13 shots to play the 15th hole, finishing his opening round at the wrong end of the leaderboard on nine over par. He putted past the hole and left the comebacker on the left edge. It led to a double-bogey 7 on the 530-yard hole - his lone flaw of the day.

Charley Hoffman sits atop the leaderboard at 4 under. He missed the putt, so finished two over for the day, four under for the tournament.

Another memorable shot was Russell Henley's 82-footer for eagle on No. 15. He wasn't sure he could play until tests showed he was cleared to play.

It is also the first time since 1996 and 1997, when Ben Crenshaw and Nick Faldo missed cuts in consecutive years as defending champions, that it has happened twice in a row.

Woods found a greenside bunker at the par-3 fourth.

His tee shot at No. 11 rattled between some pine trees left.

He is the only player in the field to make birdie on every par 5 both rounds.

By now Spieth's putter was so cold he must have had trouble peeling his fingers off it.

Tough conditions at Augusta National could help keep him in the hunt. This is one of the best golfers in history, the victor of 14 majors and 79 PGA tournaments. X-rays were negative, and Finau was diagnosed with a high ankle sprain. "Thanks for thoughts of concern, messages and prayers from all".

Taking his wife Justine's advice, he kept the driver in the bag on the par-4 first hole, kept the ball in the fairway with a 3-wood, made birdie and was off. He credited a par-saving putt on nine for keeping him stable, and he shot 2-under-par on the back for a 74. If I can drive like I did today, feeling-wise, and hit those shots, give myself a chance, and if I clean up my iron play.

"This is my 42nd Masters", club chairman Fred Ridley said Wednesday.

Playing the par-3 16th in the second round Friday, Johnson landed just off the back of the green.

"So what's the first couple holes on a Friday start mean?" He dropped to one knee and ended up pushing the joint back into place. "By the end of the week, this will be a pretty packed leaderboard the way the golf course is set up".

The 82nd Masters has begun. The Masters official site will stream all the action starting Thursday morning.

"I've been playing so well this year, to play like this. I struggled with them", he told Sky Sports.
