Kevin Stadler Is In It After Day One At His First Masters

Tiger‘s out with a bad back. Phil‘s 43.

Who’s next?

Maybe one of these guys – the 24 rookies playing The Masters this week.

They range in age from 19 to 51.

They rank from 13th to 168th (not counting the six amateurs) and represent 10 different countries.

And who’s the best performer after day one?

Jonas Blixt, Jimmy Walker and the Walrus‘ son, Kevin Stadler, are all two under, two strokes off the pace (Bill Haas is at -4).
