Full leaderboard

Three-time big winner Brooks Koepka and US American Bryson DeChambeau share the lead after a thrilling opening round of the 83rd Masters.

Koepka fired a bogey-free 66, while DeChambeau, who hit the pin with his second goal to the final hit, struck Birdie and also scored six goals.

Three times champion Phil Mickelson, 48, third is down to five, while England's Ian Poulter is fourth with the number two in the world Dustin Johnson at four below.

Spain Jon cream and Masters Winner 2013 Adam Scott are in a group at three under the quadruple champion Tiger Woods is a shot further back on a crowded leaderboard.

Northern Ireland Rory McIlroy began his quest for the only major he could still win with a one-over-73, while being number one in the world Justin Rose, He was past nine to four, clearing birdies on the 15th and 17th holes when he carded a 75.

Koepka and DeChambeau shine

Koepka, who missed the Masters wrist injury last year, has won three of the last seven majors to defend the 2018 US Open title before winning the US PGA Championship.

After a lonely birdie on the first nine, he made five holes in six holes from the tenth hole before parrying the last three.

Dechambeau, who uniquely uses irons, all of which have the same shank length, profited from the second nine with birdies on the short 12th and long 13th before becoming the first player in six years to get a shot at each of the last four holes ,

Mickelson had a typical up and down round and used both parfives of the first nine to reach two before bogeys on the 10th and 11th seemed to have stopped his swing.

The left-hander, however, struck back with birdies on the two par-threes and two par-fives in the second nine before he finished with his seventh birdie at the last end with a swing.

He would become the oldest winner of the Masters if he triumphed on Sunday.

titleholder Patrick Reed He used the par five holes on Back Nine to finish in 13th and make the 15th birdie, but he also carded five bogeys when he scored the same score as 2017 Sergio with a one-over-73 Garcia reached.

Woods bets on the fifth championship title

On Tuesday, Woods talked about his belief that he could end his decade-long drought on this year's majors, and the four-time winner supported these words with a solid opening round on Thursday.

The American was one of the early starters at Augusta National and led the field briefly to three, before a bogey on the 17th crashed him into the chasing group.

For those of you who looked like the precursors, Woods scored 70 in the first round of each of his first three Masters victories. However, the last 13 champions (since his last win in 2005) were in the top 10 after the opening round.

There was no real fireworks from the 14-time Major Champion, though a birdie on par 13, par 13, caused a roar that echoed across the court.

However, after Woods hit the trees, Woods got in the way of the Par-Four 17, and when he drove into a fairway bunker on the 18th, he also seemed to be aiming for a messy goal. But he hit his ball out of the sand on the green and two putted out 30 feet.

"It's not a bad start," said 43-year-old Woods. "I felt able to do birdies, but I missed a few short putts in the first nine.

"I have a late tee on Friday and the wind is supposed to be up, so I've done my job, but everyone else has."

The last majors of Woods took place in 2008 at the US Open. Since then, he suffered numerous injuries and four times operated on the back.

He missed the 2016 and 2017 Masters during his recovery, but returned to Augusta National last year, finishing 32nd, showing a real return to The Open in Carnoustie, where he briefly led on the final day before finishing sixth ,

Woods then squeezed the eventual champion Koepka close to the US PGA Championship, clinched his best final round in a Major of 64, finishing second and finishing in a grand 2018 when he ended the season's championship and ended a five-year drought ,

McIlroy "made too many mistakes"

McIlroy had problems with the first hole, but reached an imbalance after the 16th

McIlroy's lap was stooped by crazy bogeys. After a headstrong drive on the first road to the right, he hit the second in a tree and could not beat the same.

And a missed par putt five meters high on the 18th, after a bogey on the 17th, saw a round that had promises.

The 29-year-old admitted to the BBC Sport that he had made "too many mistakes".

"I made six bogeys," he added. "I did enough birdies, I did five, but I just made too many mistakes, so I'm just going to tackle some of those little problems.

"I could start a few more shots on Friday, but I just have to get off to a good start and try to put myself in the red."

Poulter leads the British and Northern Irish hopes

Five birdies and a bogey made a spectacular start for 43-year-old Poulter, who is currently celebrating his 14th Master appearance.

Poulter and Tommy Fleetwood, Whoever had three birdies and two bogeys in a 71 is the only English player under par.

Tyrrell Hatton The last one finished while he was a debutant Eddie Pepperell had a mixed bag on the second nine with two bogeys and two birdies, scoring two over 74.

Danny Willett, Champion in 2016, opened at 75, as well as the par-3 winner on Wednesday Matt Wallace, He said he did not "enjoy" his round. "I could not beat a nine on the green from nineteen yards away, it was shocking."

Matthew Fitzpatrick Five strokes fell in his last five holes to finish six Paul Casey Bogey closed, double bogey for nine over 81.

Former champions Sandy Lyle and Ian Woosnam are the only actors who represent their respective countries. Scotsman Lyle had three birdies in a one-over 73, while Welshman Woosnam had a four-bogey eight on the 11th when he finished eighth.
