First with a view


AUGUSTA, Ga. – Playing in the day’s first group, non-ceremonial division, the three-ball of Jonathan Byrd, Ross Fisher and Sean O’Hair rounded Augusta National in under five hours.

The threesome went off at 7:45 a.m. ET, just behind ceremonial starters Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer.

“Sean (O’Hair) joked that at least he outdrove Jack (at No. 1),” laughed Fisher, who is currently tied for second place after a 3-under 69.
