AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) -- Sergio Garcia posted a bogey-free six under 66 playing in the afternoon to grab a share of the lead in the first round of the Masters. Garcia opened with a birdie on the first hole and added three more before the turn, on the way to tying Australia's Marc Leishman at the top of the leaderboard.

Leishman ran off a string of four straight birdies on the way to the 66 he posted early in the day.

Dustin Johnson finds himself just a shot back after a 67.

Fifty-three year old Fred Couples showed he still can play the tough Augusta National course with a 4-under 68, that puts him in a group of players along with former champ Trevor Immelman.

Four-time champ Tiger Woods posted a 2-under 70.

Chinese teenager Guan Tianlang had an impressive Augusta National debut with a 1-over 73. The 14-year old became the youngest person to play in the Masters.

Jamie Donaldson had one of the day's highlights with a hole-in-one on the sixth hole, but could only muster a 74.
