Tiger Woods: In good position to make a move after opening round of 70

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".

Australia's Leishman, who is playing at the Masters for the third time, carded a back nine of 31 to join Garcia on six-under overall and afterwards said he was determined to keep his feet on the ground.

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.
