Here’s what defending Masters champion Dustin Johnson has to say upon his return to the clubhouse after an opening round of 74:
“Obviously it was nice to get the tournament started.
“I would have liked to have finished a little bit better today but [the] course was playing tough.
“I felt like I played pretty well [but] just didn’t score that great.”
On the pressure of defending his title:
“I feel like obviously two over is not a terrible score today.
“It’s difficult when I think three under is the lead so I feel like I’m still right in it [I] just need to go out and shoot a good score tomorrow.
“I need to play a little bit better though.”
