The first round of the Masters is in the books. A pair of young Americans are tied atop the leaderboard.

Bryson DeChambeau and Brooks Koepka each shot a dazzling 66 (-6) through the first 18 holes. The 28-year-old Koepka, who has won back-to-back U.S. Opens and the 2018 PGA Championship, is looking for his first Masters.

DeChambeau, 25, is aiming for his first major tournament victory. Phil Mickelson, who knows a thing or two about winning majors, is in third after shooting -5.

Ian Poulter and Dustin Johnson (-4) are tied for fourth, with five players tied for sixth at -3.

Here is what the top of the leaderboard looks like.

Tiger Woods had a solid first day, tying for 11th place after shooting 70. Three of the first four times Tiger shot a 70 in his first round at Augusta, he's won the green jacket. However, this stat, uncovered by Yahoo's Dan Wetzel, might not bode well for him going forward this weekend.

The second round of the Masters begins tomorrow morning from Augusta National.
