AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — With the leaders still waiting to tee off, Gary Woodland put on quite a show for the early arrivers at Augusta National.

The 29-year-old American had the patrons roaring on a Saturday morning with a 6-under 30 before the turn, matching the lowest score ever on the front side at the Masters.

Woodland became the first player since Phil Mickelson in the final round of the 2009 tournament to shoot 30 on the first nine holes. The only others to do it were K.J. Choi in 2004, Greg Norman in 1988 and Johnny Miller in 1975.

Unfortunately for Woodland, he couldn't keep it going. After another birdie at the 10th pushed his score to 4 under, he bogeyed the 11th and knocked it into Rae's Creek at No. 12 for double-bogey.
