Brooks Koepka, Bryson DeChambeau share lead after first round of Masters

Brooks Koepka, Bryson DeChambeau share Masters lead after first round

Woods sits at six under as he looks to win his fifth green jacket on Sunday.

Five golfers are tied for the lead at 7-under, while Tiger Woods is one shot back after two rounds.

Earlier, Day fired a five-under-par 67 and the former world No.1 was joined in the lead by British Open victor Francesco Molinari (67), Brooks Koepka (71) and Louis Oosthuzien (66).

British Open victor Oosthuizen also joined the party with a 68, while world No 2 Dustin Johnson returned a two-under 70 who to join Woods at six-under.

He's had back and knee surgeries, he's lost entire years to injury, and it's not out of the realm of imagination that the guard could have undone all the work that Woods put in to get back to this level.

The 29-year-old steadied himself after a bogey-six at the second with a tidy run of pars before picking up his first birdie of the day thanks to a sublime iron in close at the sixth, and he raised prospects of a strong charge when he drilled his second to six feet at the long eighth and rattled in the eagle putt.

In fact, Woods would birdie the next two holes to pull within a stroke of the lead. He has shown flashes this year on the West Coast, at Torrey Pines and Riviera, but has geared his game toward this week. I can live with days when I'm hitting putts on my line and they just don't go in, that's the way it goes.

Scott, the 2013 Masters victor, surged up the leaderboard thanks in no small part to a spectacular eagle at the 15th.

Woods' birdie at the 11th - the only one there all day - seemed to spark him, as he then hit his tee shot stiff at the 12th, only to have the horn blow stopping play due to a unsafe weather situation.

He holed out from behind the green at No. 12, picked up birdies on the par 5s, and rolled in a bending 20-footer in between on the 14th.

As a gentle rain fell, Woods hit a low hook around the trees on the 14th hole and onto the green.

"I feel like I played my own way back into the tournament", Woods said. Koepka and first-round co-leader Bryson DeChambeau (who shot 75) dropped back, and Molinari (67), Day (67), Scott (68) and Oosthuizen (67) made their moves to the top.

He two-putted for birdie on the par-5 15th.
