Jordan Spieth Leads After First Round at the Masters, Updated Odds

The first round of the 2018 Masters is in the books and there’s a familiar name at the top of the leaderboard. Jordan Spieth, who playing in only his fifth Masters tournament and has won once, finished second twice, and tied for 11th last year, is leading once again.

Spieth carded an opening-round 66 and made five straight birdies on the back nine to climb to six-under par. This is the ninth round Spieth has led in the 17 rounds he’s played at the Masters. That is astonishing.

Just behind Spieth at four-under is one of my sleepers, Tony Finau, who wasn’t sure he’d be able to go today after dislocating his ankle celebrating a hole-in-one during the par-3 contest, as well as Matt Kuchar.

The last 12 Masters champions have been in the top 10 after the first round, so take that into consideration before you place any updated bets.
