2013 Masters Video: Friday Leaderboard Update
Day one of the Masters was absolutely crazy as chip shots fell short of the green while putts rolled all the way off it. Needless to say, Augusta National is proving why it’s hosting the prestigious tournament as arguably the toughest golf course in the world.
Marc Leishman and Sergio Garcia set the pace for the contest by firing a 66 on Thursday to put themselves at six under par and in the lead. Rickie Fowler tied for third with 68 while Tiger Woods‘ 70 put him tied for 12th.
Tianlang Guan – the 14-year-old amateur phenom from China, had a great first round as well with a one-over 73, finishing ahead of notables Bubba Watson and Lucas Glover. The other favorites — Rory McIlroy and Phil Mickelson — finished at even par 72 and one-under 71, respectively. Par 3 Contest winner Ted Potter, Jr. didn’t do so well with a four-over 76, but that’s expected, right? The winner of the Par 3 Contest has never gone on to win the Masters and as Potter wasn’t exactly a favorite heading into the tournament in the first place.
Lots to keep an eye on as the thick of the tournament gets underway, (including the good-looking girlfriends of many contestants) so stay tuned to Rant Sports for the latest on the Masters.
