Keegan Bradley opened his first ever Masters tournament with a double bogey on hole No. 1, but recovered to finish the front nine at even par.
Bradley got a six on the par-four opening hole, but bounced back with birdies at the par-five second and par-three fourth. The Vermont native finished his front nine with six pars, two birdies, zero bogeys and the opening double-bogey.
Henrik Stenson started on a tear and leads the tournament midway through Thursday play at five under par through nine holes. Other notables include Tiger Woods, who birdied the third and eighth holes but gave one back at the seventh to go one under par through his first eight holes, and Rory McIlroy, who doesn't tee off until 1:42 p.m. ET.
