Zach Johnson shoots 70 in first round of The Masters

Things looked bleak on the Augusta National hole known as White Dogwood, until suddenly they didn't.

Woods's rivals in a talent-laden Masters field aren't immune. "It is ridiculous we can show them hundreds and thousands of testings with robots and projectile guns that we're the best ball, the most accurate ball; and the consumer doesn't believe us until Tiger says, "yeah, that's true". He then made a decision to attack Amen Corner with a prayer of a line drive.

"It was a attractive chip shot". "God dang it", Tiger shrieked. As he headed toward his shot, Woods was heard saying, "That ball would've been on the f--ing green".

Here's a slideshow of the opening round, including some of Tiger's shots.

"Seventy-three is fine", Woods said. "Unfortunately, people ran out and it clipped them". "To be in this position I'm at now; when I woke up this morning, nothing short of a miracle if you ask me".

Woods made another par at the second hole before draining a 10-foot birdie putt at the third to reach one under.

Despite Tariffs, China Will Not Reduce US Treasury Bond Holdings
Any additional tariffs would be subject to a public comment process and would not go into effect until that process is complete. China needed to respond to any protectionist measures from the U.S. , said RaboResearch senior economist Hugo Erken.


"You look at it and not anyone is really getting away", McIlroy said. Sunday's numbers were roughly triple last year's, meaning Tiger by himself is potentially twice the draw - by himself - as the rest of the players combined. Just under a year ago, he was going through a fourth back surgery.

Dressed in black from head to toe, Woods tried to approach his first shot like any other.

"I only came up here the last couple of years just to have food", Woods said. It was a frustrating start for the 2015 Masters champion. Absolutely. Will he win another major? He hadn't won any tournament since 2013.

U.S. Masters champion Sergio Garcia has a simple explanation for why only three players have successfully defended their green jacket. Tiger swore he didn't feel "jittery" entering his first heavyweight fight in a long time, but he's human. "And it did change because I gave myself chances to win majors after that".

This wasn't the Florida swing, after all.

Spieth took a two-stroke lead to the first tee at Augusta National on Friday. "Fore please", the man in the green jacket told the fans.

Bollywood hero Khan now Prisoner 106 in fight for bail
On Thursday, the Jodhpur court acquitted Saif, Neelam, Tabu and Sonali in the case while Salman was convicted in the same. As soon as the judgement was pronounced, other actors left the courtroom, while the police took Salman Khan into custody.


After he hit his drive into the trees on the par-4 11th hole, Woods tried to punch his second shot down the right side of the fairway.

Woods failed to birdie any of the par 5s. "I'm happy to be a part of that conversation", McIlroy said. It's such a hard golf course to play catch up on.

Garcia matched the most strokes needed on any hole in Masters history with his 13 at the par-five 15th - where he hit five consecutive balls in the water. This year, the journey to Augusta National is more relevant than the final destination. "It's been awesome this entire comeback".

For those spectators who gathered around the first tee, it was a case of being outmanoeuvred.

On Thursday, Johnson had one of his best first rounds after firing a 70.
