Thursday was an ideal day for scoring at the Masters -- sunny and warm, no wind, soft, receptive greens, tempting pin placements -- and the players took advantage. In fact, there were 20 rounds in the 60's which set a first round record and tied for most in any round. Click on the images below to hear from several players who took advantage, including first round leader Chad Campbell who birdied his first five holes for the best start in Masters history!

The wind blew a little more, the greens dried out a little more and scores have come down a little more. But none of that really mattered to Chad Campbell, who shot a second round 2-under 70 and enters the weekend as the co-leader at 9-under par.
