The Masters excitement that players, patrons and television viewers have come to expect arrived about two hours earlier than normal Sunday. With none of the contenders blitzing the second nine, it was an atypical finish for the Masters.
Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player each hit their ceremonial tee shots, and Stewart Cink and Tim Clark followed them as the first competitors to tee off this morning at Augusta National Golf Club.
The 78th Masters Tournament has officially begun.
