Sergio García's hopes of retaining his Masters title were spectacularly dashed on the 15th hole of his first round as the Spaniard carded a scarcely believable 13.

Patrons at Augusta National were left stunned as García - who broke his major duck at last year's tournament - found the water on five occasions before eventually hitting the green with his 12th shot.

Joint-worst score for a single Masters hole

He did at least manage to hole his first putt, but nevertheless tied the record for the worst score on a hole in Masters history.

Tom Weiskopf made a 13 at the par-three 12th in 1980, while Tsuneyuki Nakajima posted the same score on the 13th hole two years earlier.

García's 13 leaves reigning champion 10 over

García's nightmare octuple-bogey left him 10 over with three holes to play. To his credit, he did birdie the next.
