Marc Leishman kicks off Masters Sunday with an eagle on the par-4 7th hole

It’s Masters Sunday, everybody! We’re going to crown a new Masters winner later in the day, but, before the final groups of contenders get on the course, the rest of the weekend field gets a final lap around Augusta National.

Marc Leishman warmed up the patrons for the roars that’ll reverberate throughout the property later on Sunday afternoon with an eagle 2 on the par-4 seventh hole.

With a 149-yard second shot thrown toward the back of the putting surface, Leishman hit a ball with enough spin to come back down the slope and roll into the cup for a deuce. The eagle got Leishman to under par for his final round.

This week, the seventh hole has been the No. 10 handicap hole, making it one of the easier ones on the course. However, an eagle is an eagle, and Leishman will earn a goblet trophy for it.
