England's David Lynn is the clubhouse leader at the Masters after opening with a 4-under 68. Tiger Woods is also off to a strong start.
Woods birdied the sixth and eighth holes. That left him two strokes behind Lynn approaching the turn Thursday.
Lynn was one of the early starters on an overcast day at Augusta National. He birdied four of five holes around the turn, shook off a short miss at No. 17 and rolled in a 15-footer at the final hole to secure his spot atop the leaderboard, at least for now.
Lynn was runner-up to Rory McIlroy at last year's PGA Championship in just his second major appearance.
A HOLE IN ONE
Jamie Donaldson has made a hole-in-one at the Masters.
The Welsh golfer aced the sixth hole during Thursday's opening round. He becomes the fifth golfer to make a 1 at the 180-yard hole known as Juniper. And it's the first since Chris DiMarco in 2004.
Overall, it was the 24th ace in Masters history. Last year, Bo Van Pelt and Adam Scott made holes-in-one at No. 16.
Donaldson's brilliant shot left him at 1 under for the tournament, three strokes behind the leader, David Lynn of England.
