Jordan Spieth starts the Masters with an asymmetric first round

Jordan Spieth made a run up and down to 2-over par 74 in the first round of the Masters on Thursday, putting him in a tie for 31st place as his tour wrapped up.

Korea’s Sungjae Im took the lead after the first round with a score of 5 below par of 67. Directly behind him at 4 under par of 68 was Australia’s Cameron Smith.

Speth’s former Longhorn teammate Scotty Scheffler was among a handful of players to draw at Level 3 below Level 67, including England’s Danny Willett, Chile’s Joaquin Niemann and Dustin Johnson.

Speth said he was relieved to enter the tournament, despite the fact that he finished in a tie in 35th in his last two events and hasn’t won since the Valero Texas Open last year. But at the Augusta National, he always looks relaxed. The 2015 winner has four top ten spots in eight Masters starts.
