Spaniard Garcia, who is still searching for his first major title, described his first 10 holes - which he completed in five-under par - as "amazing".

Elsewhere, Tiger Woods began his bid for a fifth title with a "solid" opening round of 70, Rory McIlroy finished on level par after an erratic day and defending champion Bubba Watson recorded his worst score in five appearances at Augusta.
