Three-time major winner Brooks Koepka and fellow American Bryson DeChambeau share the lead after an enthralling opening round of the 83rd Masters.

Koepka shot a bogey-free 66 while DeChambeau, who hit the pin with his second shot to the last, tapped in for birdie to also score six under.

Three-time champion Phil Mickelson, 48, is third on five under, while England’s Ian Poulter is joint fourth with world number two Dustin Johnson four under.

Spain’s Jon Rahm and 2013 Masters winner Adam Scott are in a group on three under while four-time champion Tiger Woods is a shot further back on a congested leaderboard.

Northern Ireland’s Rory McIlroy began his quest for the only major he is yet to win with a one-over 73, while world number one Justin Rose, who was four over after nine, holed birdies on the 15th and 17th holes as he carded a 75.
