The Cut looks back on a dramatic opening day to the 83rd Masters at Augusta. Americans Brooks Koepka and Bryson DeChambeau surged to the top of the leaderboard with superb 66s. Iain and Andrew wonder when Koepka, the US Open and PGA champion, will finally be recognised for his remarkably consistent excellence. They also talk through DeChambeau’s extraordinary finish to his round with six birdies in his last seven holes. We hear from leading Briton Ian Poulter, a satisfied Tiger Woods and a frustrated Rory McIlroy. Eddie Pepperell also gives his verdict on his Augusta debut and former PGA champion Shaun Micheel provides expert analysis on the first day.
