The Masters 2024 LIVE: Leaderboard and latest updates as Bryson DeChambeau sets the pace
Bubba Watson's daughter, Dakota, hits the shots against the Masters

Bryson DeChambeau set the pace for the first round at The Masters as the LIV golfer topped the leaderboard on the opening day at Augusta National. The hard-hitting DeChambeau weathered blustery conditions in his first men's major of the year to score an impressive 65 on a course where he has had limited success in the past.

Leading the chasers is Scotty Scheffler, continuing his excellent form with a smooth 66 to finish six under. The PGA Tour's dominant player and 2022 Green Jacket winner arrived at Augusta as the favorite to add a second Masters crown to his collection and produced a typically calm and confident round.

The start of play was delayed by two and a half hours after morning storms, and while the rain subsided, the wind presented challenges throughout. The soft surfaces allowed players who remained in control of play to score relatively freely, with plenty of top golfers out front. Rory McIlroy signed for 71 after rebounding from a slow start, while bogeys on the final two holes left Jon Rahm, the defending champion, down one point. However, the surprise of the day was Danny Willett – playing his first tournament since shoulder surgery just six months ago, the 2016 Masters winner produced an impressive 68 points that signaled another entertaining weekend on an immaculate Georgia course.

Tiger Woods is off to a strong start after the five-time winner said he is targeting “another green jacket” to take him to 16 major titles, despite the pain he faces on the vast majority of his shots at Augusta. He and a number of other players will conclude their first round on Friday after fading light curtailed play on Thursday.
