The 2014 Masters got off to an exciting start, and fans who want to follow the action on day two will be able to go online to watch streaming video of all the action.
After the first day, golfer Bill Haas set the pace with a 68, including a birdie on the 18th hole.
Haas said he isn’t getting ahead of himself yet, and knows there are still three days to go.
“I was leading last week after the first round (at the Shell Houston Open) and finished 37th, so I know there’s tons of golf left,” said Haas, whose father played in 22 Masters tournaments. “And maybe understanding that, I know that I can’t expect too much. You’ve just got to go out there and keep playing golf, try to hit that fairway on No. 1 tomorrow.”
Defending champion Adam Scott also had a strong first round. He was a fan favorite throughout the round, earning applause and cheers at every fairway and green and even something of a standing ovation as he walked up the hill to the 12th tee, with fans rising out of their seats.
Scott said it was a feeling he would never forget, though he found a way to ruin the moment.
“Then I went and hit it in the water,” Scott said with a laugh.
But despite the setback, Scott ended the round by shooting a 3-under-par 69, trailing Haas by a stroke.
Fans who watch the 2014 Masters live online will see if the field can collectively shake its nerves and shoot better on the second day. The first day saw the lowest number of scores in the 60s since 2007. Eight golfers shot in the 80s.
