Canada's Corey Conners vaults into early tie for lead at Masters

Three-time major victor Brooks Koepka and fellow American Bryson DeChambeau share the lead at the Masters after carding rounds of six-under 66 on the first day.

"I know where and when my game is coming into really good shape and I can see it coming back and I think I got some good confirmation today with some solid ball striking", said Scott. "So I feel that kind of validates everything I've been working on the last few weeks", he added.

Woods, who won the last of his four green jackets in 2005, was met with deafening roars after being announced to the first tee and smoked a huge drive down the fairway. He would play the remainder of the front side at even par despite three missed putts from within 10 feet.

Woods, who has not broken par in the opening round of the Masters since 2013, looked comfortable early on and was accurate off the tee at sunny Augusta National where an adoring crowd cheered his every step.

Rory McIlroy, who needs a win this week to become only the sixth player to complete golf's career grand slam, was four shots off the pace after a roller-coaster one-over-par 73.

The Northern Irishman went right off the tee and had to pitch out before eventually recording a five at the par four. Defending champion Patrick Reed is grouped with former U.S. Open champion Webb Simpson and reigning U.S. Amateur Champion Viktor Hovland.

Phil Mickelson, Justin Rose and Justin Thomas are in the preceding group, with Dustin Johnson, Bryson DeChambeau and Jason Day making up another star-studded group 11 minutes earlier.
