Masters 2013: Marc Leishman on leading at Augusta

First round joint-leader Marc Leishman of Australia says he "started hitting it well" during a five-under-par back nine that left him tied with Sergio Garcia following an opening 66.

The 29-year-old birdied four consecutive holes from the 13th to establish a clubhouse lead before being joined by the Spaniard.

Leishman qualified for his first Masters by winning his maiden PGA tour title at the 2012 Travelers Championship.
