2011 Masters Leaderboard Day 1: McIlroy and Yang Lead the Way
Rory McIlroy and Y.E. Yang continue to lead the pack as the first day winds down in Augusta.
McIlroy fired a 65, -7. Yang still has two holes to play, but at the moment has pulled into a first round tie atop the leader board with McIlroy.
Yang, who won the PGA Championship at Hazeltine in 2009, defeating Tiger Woods in a come-from-behind victory in the final round, has been most impressive.
He has shot this great round with the firm greens and shadows of the afternoon.
Tomorrow, with even warmer temps possibly expected, Yang will get to go off early, which may give him a slight advantage at this point.
But it is still terribly early in the 75th Masters, and no reason to get too excited one way or the other. Players around even par are still very much in this tournament.
The cream has a way of rising to the top in this tournament.
Matt Kuchar is currently in third all by himself at -4. Several golfers find themselves at -3.
