Masters’ delayed first round ends with Bryson DeChambeau leading

Bryson DeChambeau maintained the lead in the Masters after other golfers completed the first round of play Friday morning at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Ga.

DeChambeau’s 7-under-par 65 left him one stroke ahead of Scottie Scheffler. Numerous other golfers were on the course early Friday completing their opening rounds after Thursday’s play was delayed two and a half hours due to rain then called early due to darkness.

Max Homa had birdies on two of his first four holes Friday morning to pull even with Scheffler, but a bogey to finish the round put him in a tie for third place at 5 under.

Denmark’s 23-year-old Nicolai Hojgaard wrapped up his last three holes of the opening round to sit at 5 under by round’s end.

Englishman Danny Willett finished at 4 under, while Ryan Fox of New Zealand sits at 3 under along with Australian Cam Davis.

DeChambeau is scheduled to begin his second round shortly before noon.

England’s Tyrrell Hatton was at 3 under when play stopped Thursday night, but he recorded a double-bogey 7 on No. 15 and a bogey at the 18th when play resumed to settle for even-par 72 for the round.

Five-time champion Tiger Woods ended the first round at 1 over, finishing five holes Friday morning before he was slated to start his second round less than an hour later. He had bogeys on two of his last five holes (Nos. 14 and 18) of the opening round.
