2024 Masters first round live updates: Bryson DeChambeau grabs lead, Tiger Woods sits 1-under when Round 1 was suspended

After a rain delay to start the morning, the 88th Masters is underway with the first round to wrap up on Friday morning

The 88th Masters is off and running.

Bryson DeChambeau got off to a hot start on Thursday after rain delayed the start of the opening round. DeChambeau fired a 7-under 65 to grab the early lead with LIV Golf CEO Greg Norman watching, and he got his round done before winds really picked up at Augusta National.

Tiger Woods went off in the late wave, and opened his day with a birdie. He got through 13 holes before play was called due to darkness, so he'll have five holes left on Friday in his opening round.

Scottie Scheffler finished a shot back from DeChambeau with his 6-under 66. Nicolai Højgaard, who had two birdie chip-ins on Thursday, is alone in third at 5-under. He got through 15 holes when play was called.

The first round will resume at 7:50 a.m. ET on Friday morning.

  • And there's the horn calling play for the day. Golfers can finish out their current hole if they want to. Tiger is on the 13th green now.

  • That's another up-and-down par save, this time from the woodchips above the green, for Tiger there at the 12th. He's hanging in there with only a bit of daylight left at Augusta.

  • Tiger Woods with an absolutely perfect par save at the 11th. He's still at 1-under on the day.

  • He should definitely be more concerned...

  • Højgaard is perfect with his wedge today. He's T3 now at 4-under.

  • Tiger Woods is 1-under par at the turn, but he's rapidly running out of time here.

  • Tiger with a monster drive off the ninth tee.

  • Hey, we have another birdie from Tiger Woods. He snuck in a birdie put at the par-5 8th to get back to 1-under on the day.

  • Scottie Scheffler is in a great spot with three days to go.

  • Scottie Scheffler is just one back of Bryson DeChambeau after 18 holes. His opening-round 66 is his lowest round ever at Augusta National.

  • Tiger Woods is holding steady through 7 holes this afternoon.

  • Scottie Scheffler is making moves. He's at 6-under now after this ridiculous dart at 16.

  • Jay Busbee tracked down Greg Norman at Augusta this afternoon as a LIV golfer took the early lead at the Masters

  • Patrick Cantlay from 146 yards out! That's one way to get under par.

  • That's two birdies in three holes now for Rory McIlroy. He's at 2-under on the day.

  • Greg Norman found a way into Augusta National this week, and he was spotted following LIV Golf member Jon Rahm for much of the first round. Just a few holes ahead, Bryson DeChambeau entered the clubhouse with a 7-under 65 to grab the early lead.

  • Nicolai Højgaard with a chip-in now! That's brought him into the red on the day.

  • Tiger Woods just barely misses a long par putt at the par-3 4th. He tapped in for bogey to drop back to even on the day.

  • Tyrrell Hatton from nearly 200 yards out! A routine birdie at the fifth.

  • Scottie Scheffler making moves from the Augusta beach! He's at 3-under now thru 12.

  • The wind is picking up quickly at Augusta National now. Upwards of 30 mph gusts in some places. Bryson DeChambeau and the morning wave seem to have lucked out here.

  • Will Zalatoris again! That eagle jumps him to 3-under on the day.

  • After punching out from the trees left-handed, Tiger Woods managed to save his par at the second. He'll head to the third still at 1-under.

  • Bryson DeChambeau just recorded his best round ever at Augusta National, and it couldn't have come at a better time as the wind starts to pick up.

    He carded 8 birdies en route to his 7-under 65.

  • Tiger Woods is right up against a tree on the second hole. He'll likely have to go lefty here to get it out.

  • Welp, Tiger Woods teed off on the second and immediately yelled out, "No!"

    It looks like his ball went down into the trees along the left side of the fairway.

  • Never a doubt. Tiger Woods played the first hole perfectly and sank an 8-foot putt to start the Masters with a birdie.

    It's just his third time at the Masters with a birdie on the opening hole.

  • Well this birdie putt for Tiger just got a whole lot bigger.

  • The first tee was packed to see Tiger Woods tee off alongside Jason Day and Max Homa.

  • Tiger Woods is off, and he wasted no time picking up his tee. His round is now underway at Augusta.

  • Bryson DeChambeau rolls it right down by the pin at the par-3 6th. He's cruising now on the back nine.

  • Bryson DeChambeau with back-to-back birdies again on his back nine. He's at 6-under now with an early two-shot lead over the field.

  • Tiger Woods is repping his new "Sun Day Red" here at Augusta. It's almost time.

  • Wyndham with a dart! He's at 2-under now, just three shots back from Bryson DeChambeau.

  • Bryson DeChambeau is now just a shot back from Ryan Fox at 4-under on the day.

  • Tiger Woods is set to tee off at 3:54 p.m. ET for his 26th career Masters. He's won the event five times and has nine other top-10 finishes. This year he's looking to make the cut for the 24th consecutive time, but will he be able to shoot under par in his first round? Yahoo Sports' Nick Bromberg weighed in on Tiger's chances to get out of Thursday (and maybe Friday morning) in red numbers, and to see if he can don his famous "Sunday Red" at Augusta National this weekend.

  • Incredible touch from Wyndham Clark here at the third for his first birdie of the day. A great start for the reigning U.S. Open winner

  • Ryan Fox has pulled into the first round lead at the Masters after making an eagle on the par-5, eighth hole — the longest hole on the golf course at 570 yards. He's the first player to get to 5-under for the championship.

  • Three straight birdies to start his day and then an eagle at the 8th. Ryan Fox is making the turn as the solo leader at 5-under.

  • Will Zalatoris with the perfect wedge to save par. He's hanging in there at 1-under early.

  • Nick Taylor with an early nominee for bad break of the week. On the par-3 sixth hole, Taylor was nearly perfect with his tee shot...nearly because it hit the flag stick about a foot off the ground — just inches away from making a hole-in-one — and ricocheted back toward the front of the green where he nearly rolled into the bunker, some 75 feet away from the hole.


  • The Masters leaderboard is already getting crowded at the top with several players at 3-under as the earliest groups head to the second nine at Augusta National. Among those leaders is South Korea's Byeong Hun An, who nailed this long putt on No. 6 to put himself among the players in red numbers in the early going of the first round.

  • Harris English nearly boxes an ace on No. 6! He would have been the first player to make a hole-in-one on No. 6 at the Masters since Corey Conners back in 2021. Take a look:

  • As he makes the turn, it's South Africa's Erik van Rooyen out to an early first round lead, at 3-under, tied with Bryson DeChambeau atop the leaderboard. van Rooyen was in the first group out following the rain delay and posted a bogey-free first nine with birdies on No. 3, No. 6 and No. 9.

  • Phil Mickelson is off and running at the 2024 Masters. The three-time champion made a furious charge on Sunday at the Masters in 2023 to finish with a T2 after a 7-under, 65. Mickelson made bogey on the first hole.

  • Bryson DeChambeau is off to a hot start, in search of his first Masters win and first major since the 2020 U.S. Open. The LIV star birdied each of the first three holes to grab an early lead. At the very least, DeChambeau would love to make the cut at Augusta National — something he hasn't done since 2021.

  • And Danny Willett, the 2016 Masters winner — remember that one, where Jordan Speith was well on his way to a wire-to-wire (and back-to-back) victory? — is out to a quick start, with birdies on 1 and 3 to move to 2-under.

    Bryson DeChambeau also birdied the first and is at 1-under.

    And yes, we are on the lookout for Greg Norman here at Augusta.
