Gary Woodland posted a 30 on the first nine at the Masters in his third round and in doing so tied the all-time first nine record.

The 30 included birdies at Nos. 1, 6, 8, and 9 and an eagle at No. 2.

Here are the other golfers who have shot 30 on the first nine at Augusta:

Johnny Miller (1975)
Greg Norman (1988)
KJ Choi (2005)
Phil Mickelson (2009)

That's it. That's the list.

Woodland birdied 10 to tease us a bit with a 62 watch (it would have been a Masters and major record) but closed with three bogeys and a double to finish with a still-respectable 69.

He'll play in the afternoon on Sunday but for a bit it looked like we were in for something historic.
