Masters: Friday’s key tee times, TV schedule


AUGUSTA, Ga. — Sergio Garcia and Marc Leishman share the first-round lead at the 77th Masters after opening at 6-under 66. Garcia is atop the leaderboard at a major for the first time since the 2007 British Open. Leishman is trying to be the first Australian to win the Masters.

But a whole lot of players are in easy range of the lead. Soft conditions left the course a bit vulnerable, and players took advantage: 33 were under par.
