Spieth still favored after active moving day at The Masters
Moving Day was highlighted by phenomenal play from several golfers at Augusta National Golf Club, but no matter how good anyone played there was no catching Jordan Spieth. The 21-year old now has a four-stroke lead heading into the final day of play at The Masters.
Jordan Spieth birdied eight of the first 14 holes on route to a first round 64, one off the course record, and a three-stroke lead on Day 1 of the Masters. There is a logjam behind Spieth for second with four players (Hoffman, Rose, Els, Day) all tied at -5.
