An opening 68 gave the five-time PGA Tour winner his first-ever lead at a major championship. The good news for Haas? Winning the Masters runs in the family. His dad Jay never quite pulled it off (A T-3 in 1995 was his closest call), but great uncle Bob Goalby did in 1968 (Yes, a scorecard gaffe from Roberto De Vicenzo helped). The bad news for Haas? In the past 25 years, only one first-round leader (Trevor Immelman in 2008) has gone on to take home a green jacket that week.
