Wyndham Clark could not resist a sly dig at first-round leader Bryson DeChambeau and LIV Golf.

Wyndham Clark carded a lacklustre 1-over 73 on his first-ever competitive round at The Masters and then took aim at early pacesetter Bryson DeChambeau and his peers on the LIV Golf League

Clark, 30, had moved serenely to 3-under par and on the first page of the leaderboard following a birdie on the 9th. 

But the reigning US Open champion followed a bogey at the 11th with a double-bogey at the 15th after spinning his third shot into the water.

Clark then closed with a bogey on the 18th for a round of 73 to leave him eight shots off the pace currently set by DeChambeau, who posted his lowest-ever round of 65 at Augusta National. 

After fielding a number of questions from a pool of reporters about his round, Clark concluded he was still very much in the tournament.

With DeChambeau out in front, Clark could not resist taking aim at LIV Golf's 54-hole format. 

Clark said: 

"Yeah, we've got 54 holes. In LIV Golf they only play 54, so I like my chances. We've got a lot of golf left. As you can see, someone shot 7-under. I could do that tomorrow."


DeChambeau famously said four years ago that Augusta National was a 'par-67' solely because he could reach all four par-5s in two shots. 

The big-hitting American told reporters after today's round that he 'messed up' with that particular comment in 2020. 

A total of 13 LIV Golf players are in the field this week.

LIV Golf CEO Greg Norman is in attendance, despite being 'denied' a ticket from tournament officials. 

Defending champion and LIV Golf's biggest signing Jon Rahm matched Clark's round of 73.
