AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) - The Masters began Thursday with three shots right down the middle of the fairway.

Just not terribly far.

Arnold Palmer, Gary Player and Jack Nicklaus hit the ceremonial tee shots with fans already lining both sides of the first fairway on a brisk, sunny morning. Still competitive even after all these years, Nicklaus went last and hit a drive that went about a yard past Player’s shot.
