Some guys just didn’t have their A game on Augusta National on Thursday during the opening round of the Masters. Some may not even have been ready to play.

With that said, here are the most disappointing performances from Thursday from Round 1.

Tiger finished 3 shots worse than his first round in Augusta last year and 2022 arguably presented more physical challenges for him. He came slowly out of the gates as he ended the first half of the round with three birdies. And despite having some classic Tiger moments with birdie putts on the 15th and 16th holes, his iron game just wasn’t there Thursday and he couldn’t do enough to at least finish even that day.

It just wasn’t a good day for the world’s second-ranked golfer. McIlroy’s game was subdued all afternoon, as he often found himself in bad spots out of the rough, in the sand and missing putts that he would normally make. Three bogeys and a double bogey rounded out his afternoon en route to a par-72 performance on Thursday. Just another slow start for McIlroy…again.

many can be surprised that Homa is here at all. The truth is, he’s played a decent game all season and being in second place in the PGA Tour’s FedEx Cup standings proves it. However, the 32-year-old from Burbank, CA faced some difficulties during the first round of the Masters, finishing with 71 and tying it at 26.he. Finding himself hitting off-hand on two of the first two holes of Round 1 set the tone for an uphill battle in the afternoon.

Scottie Scheffler (-4) – That? Why is Scheffler mentioned here? Well yes, he was the Scheffler we have come to know when we watched him put down perfect shots on the greens. But he was missing putts, which ultimately puts him here. His three birdies on the second nines helped his score, but that bogey on the 11th looked very bad when he needed to three-putt to finish the hole. He didn’t look like a complete golfer, one who is ranked No. 1 in the world.

Justin Thomas (-2) – Thomas had a strange day. With multiple shots off the fairway and off the greens (and sometimes shape off the greens), the 10thhe The best golfer in the world continued to fight his own bad shots. With four birdies and just two bogeys, Thomas’ 70-under could have been much worse.
