Tiger Woods started his Masters title defense Thursday by doing something he's never done in 23 career appearances at the famous Augusta National Golf Club. He went without a bogey in the opening round. He shot 4-under par and is tied for fourth place after Thursday's first round that was eventually suspended.

In addition to his first-ever, bogey-free opening round at the Masters, he tied a career best in his first round in Augusta, and it was his first round of golf in a major tournament that was without a bogey since 2008.

"Yeah, I did everything well," Woods said. "I drove it well, hit my irons well, putted well. The only real bad shot I hit today was I think 8. I had a perfect number with a 60-degree sand wedge and I hit it on the wrong shelf."

Clean. 💯

England's Peter Casey leads the field after shooting a 7-under par 65, including an eagle on hole No. 2 that took him to 6 under. He was scheduled to tee off before foul weather delayed the tournament. When he returned to the course to tee off, it was like the Augusta Chamber of Commerce drew up the weather with perfect conditions.

"That was a very good break," Casey said.
