Scott then knocked in the eagle putt to move to eight under par.

"I've shot this number and won four coats, so hopefully, I can do it again, " said Woods, who slightly miscalculated.

Tiger Woods put himself in a good position at The Masters after a solid first-round 70, and the 14-time major champion appeared to be on the verge of blitzing the back nine and vaulting up the leaderboard - until a weather delay halted the field.

Scott, who has never led at Augusta despite winning the green jacket in 2013, was happy with his round.

At the 12th, Augusta National's signature par-3, Woods dropped a dart just a few feet from the hole - but he wasn't able to carry his momentum to the green.

Brooks Koepka hits out of the trees on the 17th hole on his way to a share of the lead after two rounds of the Masters at Augusta National.

More impressive than the four straight birdies by DeChambeau was how he made them. "I believe that's partially what happened today".

However the South Australian missed a short par putt on the par-three 16th - the bogey dropping him back into a tie for the lead at seven under alongside Day.

"Three [majors] in a row, I've been right in the mix", Woods added, building on his second place at last year's PGA Championships.

Rory McIlroy's bid for the last leg of the career Grand Slam began with a 73, which featured six bogeys. McIlroy played the par 5s in even - two bogeys, one par and an eagle on No. 8 that got him under par, but only briefly. It's "hypnotic" as he discusses the angle of the shot (30 degrees), the ideal spin rate of the ball (5,000rpm), water density, and the general physics at play, per Golf Digest.
