Masters Update: Bryson DeChambeau Dominates in Round One

Bryson DeChambeau led the way in the first round of The Masters, dominating the leaderboard as a player from the LIV series. On the iconic Augusta National course, DeChambeau powered through challenging winds to score an impressive 65, despite his historically modest success at this venue.

Scottie Scheffler closely followed, extending his stellar run with a 66, finishing the day at six-under. The top contender of the PGA Tour and the reigning 2022 Masters champion, Scheffler came into the tournament favoured to win his second Masters title, delivering a round marked by poise and assurance.

The 2024 Masters start was postponed by two and a half hours due to morning storms. Although the rain subsided, strong winds tested the golfers throughout the day. The softer playing conditions, however, did allow those who maintained control to achieve good scores, with several prominent players advancing.

Rory McIlroy managed a 71 after overcoming a sluggish start, while defending champion Jon Rahm finished one-over after making bogeys on the final two holes. Meanwhile, Danny Willett, in his first event post-shoulder surgery six months prior, surprised many by carding a 68, indicating potential for another memorable weekend at the pristine Georgia course.

Tiger Woods also began strongly, aiming for "one more green jacket" which would bring his total major wins to 16. Despite the discomfort he experiences with most shots at Augusta, Woods is set to complete his first round on Friday following a delay due to diminishing light on Thursday.
