Bryson DeChambeau heads into Round 2 of the Masters with the lead.

DeChambeau flew through his opening round on Thursday to post a bogey-free 65 in what was his best round at the Masters ever. That gave him a one-shot lead over Scottie Scheffler and the rest of the field.

Thanks to a heavy storm that went through the area, though, play was delayed a bit on Thursday morning — which in turn caused the opening round to be called early due to darkness on Thursday night. Among those still on the course is Tiger Woods, who ended his day at 1-under through 13 holes

The first round will resume on Friday morning at 7:50 a.m. ET, and the second round will get going just 10 minutes later off the first tee. That will make for a long day for Woods, who has 23 holes ahead of him on Friday to see if he can make the cut and get to the weekend — which would give him a record 24th straight made cut at Augusta National.

  • Max Homa is on one this morning, dropping his approach at 17 an inch from the cup. That birdie will move him to 6-under, just one shot off the lead.

    Tiger Woods needs two putts on 16 to get his second straight par. He remains even par for the first round as he heads to the 17th hole.

  • Meanwhile, Max Homa drained his birdie putt to put him at -5. He’s just two back of DeChambeau.

  • Jason Day, sporting an interesting sweater this morning, dunked it into the water at 16. That led to a double bogey and he’s now at +2.

  • After a poor third shot on 15, Tiger Woods managed to get up and down to save par. He’s currently even par on his round with three holes to play.

  • Round 2 underway … and Tiger bogeys

    Lee Hodges kicks off Round 2, which actually begins on time.

    At the same time, Tiger Woods dropped a stroke at 14 after his approach came up short. He appears to be laboring a bit this morning.

  • Resumption of Round 1 is underway

    Round 1 is back, and it begins with Tiger Woods striping his drive in the middle of the fairway at No. 14.

    The 27 players who weren’t able to finish yesterday actually caught a break. As the sun went down Thursday, playing conditions were getting dicey as the wind had kicked up. That wind is mostly gone this morning, and conditions are much better for those finishing up their round today than they would have been yesterday.

    The question now is, can they capitalize and make up some ground on Bryson DeChambeau, who holds the clubhouse lead at 7-under.

    Of those still on the course, Nicolai Hojgaard (-5) and Max Homa (-4) are closest to DeChambeau.

  • Round 2 about to get underway

    Morning from Augusta, where temperatures have dropped — it’s currently 54 degrees — but the rain has gone away for the rest of the weekend.

    Twenty-seven players still need to complete Round 1, which begins at 7:50. Round 2 will start at 8 a.m.
