The first tee-shots at Augusta National Golf Club have been struck to open the 2013 Masters, and a flurry of players are already under par on Thursday.
PGA Tour veterans Brian Gay and Carl Pettersson lead the charge at 2-under, followed by six players one shot back at 1-under. Included in that group is England's Justin Rose, South Africa's Tim Clark and golf legend -- and former Masters winner -- Tom Watson.
After two pars to open his front nine, Watson birdied the par-4 no. 3 hole to get to his current mark. Watson, 63, has a knack to add a flair of excitement to any major these days, especially following his unbelievable performance at the 2009 British Open.
On the other end of the spectrum, former World No. 1 Lee Westwood is struggling early on. After double-bogeying the first hole he responded with a birdie at hole no. 2 to get back to 1-over par.
