The ever popular Fred Couples making a bit of a move with birdies on the 1st and 2nd. A repeat of 1992 anyone?
Lee Westwood safely pars the 1st. Always nice to get the first hole under your belt free from disaster and disappointment.
Bad news for all those with dear old Blighty close to their hearts. Justin Rose dropped a shot on the 1st.
Not too long now before Bubba and the young pretender Jordan Spieth are out. Did you know that 19 of the last 23 Masters champions have come from the day four final pair. No? You do now.
Better news for the Brits as Rose birdies the 2nd to make up for the mess he made of the 1st. Evens for Justin today but it's still exceedingly early doors.
The penultimate pair of Jonas Blixt and Matt Kuchar are up and running, both driving handsomely and straight off the tee at the 1st.
Rickie Fowler, resplendent in his customary orange top, birdies the 1st. The jockeying at the top of the leader board begins in earnest...
What a difference a day makes. Miguel Angel Jimenez was majestic (if you ignore the ponytail) yesterday in shooting a tournament best 66. He kicks off Sunday with a bogey on the 1st.
'Mr Dependable' Jim Furyk sinks a calm and collected six footer on the second for the birdie and he's three under and heading in the right direction.
Spieth and Bubba on the tee at the 1st. The youngster has the 'honour' of going first. Whatever happened to age before beauty?
Blixt makes his par on the 1st. As does Kuchar. Only 17 more to go boys...
Rose drops a shot on the 3rd which means he's kicked off his round with a bogey, birdie, bogey. It's entertaining but we could do without the dropped shots Justin.
Ah, the vagaries of the greens at Augusta. Fowler has a 10-footer for birdie on the 2nd but contrives to three putt for a bogey.I need sunglasses to cope with the sheer iridescence of his orange outfit.
Westwood drops one on the 3rd and that famous saying 'The Brits are coming' is ringing a tad hollow at the moment.
Bubba and Spieth par the 1st...
A touch of redemption for McIlroy. Birdies on 7, 8 and then 9 take him to two under for the day and more respectable one over for the tournament.
Kuchar sinks a tiddler on 2nd for the birdie and he joins the leaders on five under.
The vocal and exuberant Masters crowd is jolly happy. Three Americans leading the tournament...
That's more like it, Poulter birdies the 7th to leave him evens for the day and the tournament.
Damn it. Westwood three putts on the 4th for a double bogey. Is it all over for the man who's played in 63 Majors and never won? I think it might be already.
Spieth birdies the 2nd and although he clearly should be ding his homework and not playing golf, the kid takes the lead in the 2015 Masters.
Bish bosh. Kuchar hits backs immediately with a birdie of his own on the 3rd and we have joint leaders at six under.
McIlroy birdies the 11th and he's fought his way back to evens. Is it to late for a mercurial late charge. Maybe not, you know, maybe not...
Watson struggling on the 3rd, looks certain to drop a shot...
...and he does. Not a great start for Bubba, one over after 3 and now two adrift of Spieth and Kuchar.
Spieth pars the 3rd to maintain his position ahead of his elders, which would be considered impertinent if not rude in other walks of life.
And now Spieth really is the king of the castle as Kuchar double bogeys four to slip back and leave the 20-year-old dreaming of a famous victory.
It's Spieth's Masters debut. The last rookie to win the tournament was Fuzzy Zoeller in 1979. Just saying...
When it's your day... Spieth chips in from the bunker on the 4th for a birdie. Seven under, three clear and he's probably to young to understand the enormity of what's happening to him.
