2011 Masters Leaderboard: Lion Kim Shoots 76 In 1st Round

University of Michigan golfer Lion Kim shot an opening-round 76 in the 2011 Masters golf tournament on Thursday. That put him four over after one round of play.

Kim made his Masters debut by shooting a birdie on the first hole. He shot for par on the second and third holes and then bogeyed the fourth hole. Following a par on the fifth hole, Kim had another bogey. He alternated bogeys and pars again with a par on the seventh and a bogey on the eighth. The front nine came to a close on a positive note for Kim, as he birdied the No. 9 hole.

On the back nine, Kim bogeyed the 10th and had a double bogey on the 11th. He birdied the 13th and hit a bogey on the 17th hole. The other holes on the back nine were pars for Kim, who finished the first day at +4.

Kim is currently one under par through 15 holes in the second round of the 2011 Masters. That puts him at three over for the tournament, which means he is in contention to make the cut and could get to keep playing at Augusta this weekend.
