- Three players tied on seven under after opening round
- Rahm recovers after four-putting first hole
Greg Norman may have the last laugh. Given the trauma Augusta National caused the Australian during his playing days, it would surely be an almighty roar.
Norman’s position front and centre of LIV’s disruption model means that a description of him as persona non grata at the Masters feels like the understatement of the year. The means for the former world No 1 to get even rather than mad lies in the hands of LIV converts. Enter Brooks Koepka, who made birdies on three of his final four holes to join the day-one leaders party at seven under par.
