AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) - Sergio Garcia has turned in a bogey-free round to claim a share of the Masters lead.
    
Garcia shot a 6-under 66 Thursday, leaving him tied with Marc Leishman and matching the Spaniard's best score ever at Augusta National.
    
This is a course that has never suited Garcia's game - especially his shaky putter. But he breezed around without a bogey on his card for the first time since 2002.
    
It's still a reach to think this might be the place where Garcia wins his first major championship. He's had only two top-10 finishes in 14 Masters appearances.
    
But the way he played in the opening round could mean a change in fortune.
    
Dustin Johnson is one stroke back at 67. Tiger Woods is just four shots off the lead after a 70.
