1st Round

Billy Mayfair and Ian Poulter were the first competitiors to tee off in the 2007 Masters. Both posted scores that were over par. Poulter posted a 3 over 75, while Mayfair posted a 4 over 76. The course proved to be playing tough, as many big names faltered on the opening day. Ernie Els finished with a 6 over 78. Defending champion Phil Mickelson looked set to get the same score, but two late birdies, salvaged a poor round, as he came home with a 4 over 76, world number two Jim Furyk, managed a 3 over 75 to keep himself in contention. Gary Player playing in his 50th masters could only manage an 11 over 83, two times winner Severiano Ballesteros could only manage a 13 over par 86. 2006 runner up Tim Clark produced a wonderful shot on the 18th hole to get to a 1 under round of 71. Coming up the 18th Clark was level par, but he had pushed his second shot to the left of the green. Clark decided to putt from off the green, and his ball went all the way round the green before dropping in the hole to secure his 1 under round of 71. The leaders after the first round were Justin Rose and Brett Wetterich, both posted rounds of 3 under 69. Rose set a new lowest putts record, as he went round in 20 putts. One of the reasons for this was his superb chipping which included a holed bunker shot on the 5th to pick up his second birdie after one at the 3rd. He then crisply rolled home at 14 to move to three-under and made a fine save at the last having found a greenside bunker to secure his round of 69. Wetterich produced 5 birdies during his round to secure his place in the lead after 18 holes. The chasing pac consisted of David Howell who eagled the 15th to post a 2 under 70, and David Toms who was last out on the course also produced a 2 under 70. Behind them on 1 under was Vaughn Taylor, Zach Johnson, Rich Beem and J.J. Henry. Billy Mayfair is a PGA golfer. ... Ian Poulter (b. ...
