Beautiful weather and solid play took place during the first round of The Masters. The course won, in my opinion, by holding the majority of the players to even or worse, though a few slipped by with a victory against the course.
Both Justin Rose and Trevor Immelman shared the lead at 68 (4 under par). Ian Poulter aced #16 which helped him into 6th place. A gaggle of others sit at 71 (-1).
Tiger, the overwhelming favorite, shot a boring even par with a 2 back-to-back bogeys and followed by a chip in eagle at 15.
I still am holding onto my prediction that 285 (-3) will win the tournament. The weather is supposed to turn ugly on the weekend, so I expect scores to rise.
