Masters Leaderboard - First Round - 2014

I think that there are a couple of surprises after the first day at The Masters. I didn’t hear much discussion of Bill Haas running up to the start of the tournament. And did anyone predict that the former World Number One Luke Donald would be a cellar dweller at +7. I did hear several pundits predict big things for Graham DeLaet. Not so much at +8.

But so much for the bottom. At the top, it’s much as was expected: Louis Oosthuizen, Adam Scott and Bubba Watson—all former Major champions—are just a shot behind Haas at -3. The gang at -2 (T5) includes Brandt Snedeker, Jimmy Walker and Gary Woodland, all of whom made the hot lists of one prognosticator or another.

Sadly, my pre-season pick for the Masters, Jason Day, suffered through to a +3. I’ll blame the thumb injury.

And then there’s my sentimental favorite at Augusta: Fred Couples, who seems to rise each year like a Phoenix as he rides down Magnolia Lane. He’s in at -1.
