Aussie Marc Leishman Masters Clubhouse Leader After Shooting 6-Under 66

Aussie Marc Leishman Masters Clubhouse Leader After Shooting 6-Under 66

UPDATE: Leishman is tied with Sergio Garcia at -6. 

Marc Leishman, whose only win on the PGA Tour earned him an invite to this year’s Masters, is the clubhouse leader at -6 after shooting an impressive 66, including a 31 on the back nine on Thursday in the first round of the season’s first major. 

The Australian made four consecutive birdies starting with one on the 13th hole. He drained a putt on the the 16th before parring the last two holes. He leads David Lynn, who is in at -4.

Jim Furyk and Zack Johnson, the 2007 Masters winner from Iowa, are in the clubhouse at -3. Jason Day, another Australian, is at -3 and on the course, as is Rickie Fowler. 

K.J. Choi and Lee Westwood played steady golf and both are in at -2. Both are considered two of the best players in the world to have never won a major tournament. 

Kevin Na, who, like Furyk, is not the quickest player in the world, to say the least, is in at -2. 

Brett Snedeker, Justin Rose, and John Huh are also bunched together at -2. 

Tiger Woods, seeking his fifth Masters win and 15th major, was at -2 at the time of this writing. Sergio Garcia, who was once thought to be Woods’ greatest potential rival, was at -3 and on the course.

Phil Mickelson was at +2 and Bubba Watson, the defending champion, was on the course at +3.

Tianliang Guan, the 14-year-old amateur from China who is the youngest ever Masters participant, was at +1, out-dueling Watson and Mickelson. 

Fred Couples, Rory McIlroy, Dustin Johnson, and Adam Scott were at -2 and on the course.
