Spieth has composed himself very well early on, 4-under through 11 holes, putter working quite well today. Tricky conditions, swirling winds, maybe the benefactor of an early tee time on the opening day with winds expected to become more of an issue in the afternoon. Quite impressive, but still 7 more holes to play.
Bryson DeChambeau is likewise handling his first Masters showing quite well. Mickelson said earlier in the week that Bryson is a very talented player who should enjoy a good career, and it looks like he wasn't just being complimentary out of niceties. The kid has been pretty impressive this morning, doesn't seem intimidated whatsoever.
Paul Casey is feeding off of Jordan's fumes, having a good first few hours of play. Jordan plays well with Englishmen in majors, it seems. And just about every other nationality on the planet for that matter.
Fowler is hemorrhaging blood everywhere. It has not been a good day for him, and unless he can turn things around - Augusta National will make quick work of his first major this season.
The live online telecast via Masters.com is exceptional, btw. Very enjoyable way to get in some early coverage.
