Presidents Cup to Masters contention for Ancer, Smith, Im

AUGUSTA, Ga. — Abraham Ancer, Cameron Smith and Sungjae Im were rookies on the International team that lost the Presidents Cup to the United States.

Smith is playing in the Masters for the fourth time — he finished tied for fifth in 2018 — while Ancer and Im are making their debuts.

Since winning the green jacket in a tournament best known for Jordan Spieth’s collapse, Willett has missed the cut each time.

Former Masters champion Adam Scott was motoring along at 4 under as he finished up his first round, and he figured to get even closer to the lead as he approached the par-5 15th.

An Augusta National member, Knox has become renowned for playing as a marker on the weekend when an odd number of players make the cut.

Van Rooyen was part of the only twosome in the 92-player field, scheduled to play the first two rounds with South Korea’s Sung Kang.
