Masters Leaderboard Update: Rory McIlroy Leading, Martin Kaymer Tumbling

Rory McIlroy has taken the early top leaderboard spot in the first round of the 2011 Masters Tournament, shooting 5-under through hole No. 13. The Northern Irish player jumped to a hot start with birdies on holes No. 2, 3, and 4, later adding 9 and 11 with nary a bogey so far. He's followed by Retief Goosen and Charl Schwartzel, both at 4-under.

World No. 1 Martin Kaymer is having a rough Thursday, shooting 4-over par through 14 holes. Kaymer shot bogeys on holes No. 2, 4, and 7, and committed the dreaded double bogey on hole No. 10. Tiger Woods is hanging in there, tied at 14th by shooting 1-under through nine holes, with Phil Mickelson set to start within the next three groups.

Matt Kuchar leads all locals, shooting 3-under through hole No. 11, good for a fourth-place tie. Bubba Watson has yet to make his move, shooting even par through just one hole. Stewart Cink is set to tee off momentarily.
