SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Tony Finau has made the turn on day one of the 2020 Masters Tournament just a few shots off the lead.

The front nine for Finau, which began on hole 10, got off to a very rocky start.

A long par putt save on 10 had the heart pumping faster than he had of hoped. Then, back to back bogeys on 11 and 12 pushed Finau back into the positive numbers.

Fortunately, as the holes continued, his confidence grew and the par 5’s saved Finau through his first nine holes of the tournament.

The first par 5 came on 13 in which he birdied. Then on 15 he eagled after holding out from the right greenside bunker. His final birdie came on the par 4 17th to.

It was an up and down front nine holes for Finau who would have preferred more pars and fewer bogeys. He ended up bogeying three of the first nine holes.

Nonetheless, Finau remains in contention and sits just four shots off the leaders Webb Simpson and Lee Westwood.

Holes one through nine remain and plenty of birdie opportunities await Finau who hopes to secure the first major tournament of his career.
