Former IMG Academies standout Peter Uihlein is tied for 31st after the first round at the Masters.

The reigning U.S. Amateur champion and current Oklahoma State University golfer is tied with two other players for low-amateur honors.

Uihlein nailed 13 greens in regulation en route to an even-par 72 on Thursday.

He played alongside defending champ Phil Mickelson and former U.S. Open champ Geoff Ogilvy.

Lefty opened with a 2-under 70, while Ogilvy is in the top 10 after a 3-under 69.

Uihlein hit 11 of 14 fairways and birdied No. 18 to bring his round in at 72.

He tees off Friday's second round at 10:30 a.m.
