"Seniors" Couples and Watson Lead Masters

Posted:

-- The old-timers had their way at the Augusta National. Fifty-year-old Fred Couples has the outright lead after shooting a 6-under 66. Sixty-year-old Tom Watson, Lee Westwood, Phil Mickelson and Y.E. Yang are tied for second one shot back.

Tiger Woods had two eagles in a round for the first time in his Masters career, firing a 4-under 68 that has him in the hunt at the first major golf tournament of the year. The four-under 68 was his lowest score ever in an opening round at the Masters and it came in Woods' first competitive round of golf since his sex scandal rocked the golf world four months ago. Cedar Rapids native Zach Johnson shot a 2 under par 70 and he stands four shots back.
