And that goes for his caddie, too.

Thereafter, Spieth was typically insightful on the basis upon which he and the world's other leading players can try to halt Johnson's run.

Scott has two caddies who are in a job-sharing program, and while Steve Williams usually works at the majors, Scott felt it was important for Williams to caddie this week.

Allenby has been mired in a lengthy slump but will have taken some confidence from stringing together four good rounds last week, perhaps the first step in a return to the PGA Tour.

First-year pro Arnold Palmer ties for 10th place in the first of his 50 appearances in the Masters. When the 81st Masters begins Thursday, the 32-year-old American will not have experienced anything but trophy presentations for almost two months.

Other Australians playing in the last-chance saloon are Stuart Appleby, Robert Allenby, Aaron Baddeley, Steven Bowditch, Matt Jones, Geoff Ogilvy and John Senden. A year ago, Jim Herman held off Stenson for a one-shot victory to earn his first trip to the Masters. In the last 38 events on TOUR, three players have won as the favorite.

Spieth can only hope for the same.

Cabrera Bello couldn't match his 2016 performance at last week's WGC-Dell Match Play, but he still logged some solid rounds, defeating two opponents, including a red-hot Tyrrell Hatton, in the group stage.
