The Masters has started and a couple of relatively unknowns are on top of the leaderboard in Augusta, Ga.

Marc Leishman currently has the lead. The 29-year-old Australian fired a 6-under 66. Leishman was the 2009 PGA Tour Rookie of the Year.

n his first appearance in the tournament, David Lynn posted a 4-under 68 and is alone in second for the time being.

Jim Furyk finished his first round with a 69 and sits at 3-under

And in case your wondering, Tiger Woods is 3-under through 13 holes.

Lynn was one of the early starters on an overcast day at Augusta National. He birdied four of five holes around the turn, shook off a short miss at No. 17 and rolled in a 15-footer at the final hole to secure his spot atop the leaderboard, at least for now.

Lynn was runner-up to Rory McIlroy at last year's PGA Championship in just his second major appearance.
