Zach Johnson In Contention After First Round at Masters

Posted:

Des Moines native Jack Newman shot an even-par 72 in the opening round of the Masters Thursday.

Newman, a junior from Michigan State playing his first career round in a major championship, birdied four of the last five holes at Augusta National Golf Club.

The 21-year-old Newman was 4-over par through 13 holes. But he hit a birdie putt from the fringe on the 18th hole to break even for the day.

Cedar Rapids native Zach Johnson, who won the Masters in 2007, shot a 2-under 70.
