The Masters returned in a big way on Thursday, as did one of golf’s greatest players.

Tiger Woods scored a 1-under in his first round at Augusta National. His round featured some vintage moments, including a patented fist pump after nailing a birdie putt on the 16th hole.

The five-time Masters champion sits in a tie for 10th place and four back of the lead after 18 holes. South Korea’s Sungjae Im posted the top score on Thursday, scoring a 5-under 67 thanks to five birdies and an eagle. 

Cameron Smith had a chance to take the lead into the second day, but a double-bogey on 18 brought him down to 4-under for the day. World No. 1 Scottie Scheffler, Dustin Johnson, Danny Willett and Joaquin Niemann sit in a tie for third place after going 3-under on Thursday.
