Justin Rose and Trevor Immelman shot 4-under 68s for the clubhouse lead in the first round of the Masters today. On a warm, sunny opening day that featured Ian Poulter's hole-in-one, a solid start to Zach Johnson's title defense and Tiger Woods poised for a run at another green jacket, Rose was atop the leaderboard yet again.

"I've learned you can't count your chickens too early," said Rose. "Obviously, the first round has been great to me here." Woods prefers to do his best work on the weekend. In his four previous Augusta wins, he twice trailed by three shots after the first round, another time by five, and was a daunting seven shots back in 2005. (Read more Justin Rose stories.)
