2011 Masters Leaderboard: First Round a Day of Low Scoring
If nothing else, the first round was kind to many in the field of 99 at the 75th Masters.
Led by Rory McIlroy's 65, 29 players sit under par and another 18 at even par. That is 47 (almost half) in the field no worse than even par, and all within seven off the lead. These are not quite the final numbers, as the final few groups are still on the course as I write this.
The conditions were optimal almost all day longer for scoring. As many good scores were posted late as they were posted early in the day.
Day two promises similar weather, although perhaps a bit warmer.
As play wraps on a Thursday evening in Augusta, here are the top six. Seven golfers share seventh place at -3.
Rory McIlroy -7
Y.E. Yang -5
Alvaro Quiros -5 (thru 16)
Matt Kuchar -4
Rickie Barnes -4
K.J. Choi -4 (thru 17)
