Thursday at the Masters
Round 1 Highlights and Takeaways
Hello friends (Jim Nantz voice) and welcome to your first round recap of The 2018 Masters Tournament.
Coming into the year’s first major, the anticipation for this season’s edition of The Masters has been as monumental as ever.
Tiger Woods is back following a promising beginning to his comeback. Jordan Spieth returns to Augusta National to right the ship following 2016’s heartbreak. Mickelson has regained his winning form. Justin Thomas has yet to slow down from a 2017 campaign in which he won the PGA Championship, FedEx Cup and Player of the Year honors. Justin Rose has surged recently and could vindicate last year’s playoff loss.
And Dustin Johnson has managed to navigate stairs without injury.
Thursday would not disappoint. Jordan Spieth ended the day in sole possesion of the lead at 6-under par, with a number of newcomers and proven players still within reach.
Let’s get into it!
