A frustrated Rory McIlroy left himself facing an uphill struggle to win the Masters and complete the career grand slam following an opening 73 at Augusta National.
McIlroy was two over par for the day after bogeys on the 10th and 11th but rallied superbly to birdie the 13th, 15th and 16th, only to drop shots on the last two holes.
The last 13 Masters champions were all inside the top 10 after the opening round and McIlroy found himself outside the top 40 at the time of signing his card.
