    Even though the three-day rain ceased just moments before the tournament began, the strong intermittent wind was still an issue at Augusta National. Although it was a problem for everyone else, Charley Hoffman seemed unaffected by the weather and had an incredible first round of this year's Masters Tournament; a nine-birdie, seven-under 65- including five birdies in his last seven holes- on a day when the scoring average was 10 strokes above of that. That's quite a large gap, considering the group of players.

    Other tournament favorites for reference:

    William McGirt: 69

    Phil Mickelson: 71

    Rory McIlroy: 72

    Jason Day: 74

    Jordan Spieth: 75

    Hoffman said, "For lack of any better words, it was a dream."

    This is Hoffman's 4th time competing at the Masters, and has four PGA tour wins under his belt. I hope he can keep up this momentum throughout the tournament. It's always fun watching someone who wasn't in the spotlight taking out the big dogs.

    That's a very impressive first round, but I can't help but be amazed at how Phil Michelson is still going so strong at his age. He seems to be in contention in every single major, which is crazy considering he has been around since my pre-teenage years.

    I know what you mean. I will always think of the name Phil Michelson when I think of the Masters. They just are one in the same for me.
