- +

AUGUSTA - Adam Scott made a storming start to the Masters on Thursday as he opened his campaign to become the first back-to-back champion at Augusta National since Tiger Woods in 2002. 

Thongchai Jaidee tees off on the 17h hole Friday morning (Thailand time) on his way to a one-over 73 in the first round of the Masters. Thongchai is in good position to make the cut Friday evening, with his tee time set at 7:51.

The Australian, who last year became the first player from his country to win the Masters, carded a three-under 69, which could have been even better had he not found water en route to a double-bogey five at the treacherous 12th.
