2015 MASTERS GOLF TOURNAMENT
April 10, 2015  | By David Bianculli

ESPN, 3:00 p.m. ET

 

Jordan Spieth burst out of the gate yesterday, registering nine birdies and only one bogey to finish the first round of this year’s Masters at a very impressive 8 under par, earning the 21-year-old the early lead with a first-day 64. The last person to collect nine birdies in one Masters round at Augusta? Tiger Woods, four years ago. Yesterday, however, the closely scrutinized Woods shot a 1 over par first-round 73, tying him for 41st place. So today, Spieth is playing to maintain his lead, while Woods is playing to make the cut for the weekend.
