After the inaugural ‘Final Series’ began, took a statistical – and sometimes sideways – look at the key numbers from day one at the BMW Masters presented by SRE Group in Shanghai.


19 – The miniscule number of putts Luke Guthrie had en route to his best-of-the-day 65

2 – The amount of times he chipped in at consecutive holes from the 14th 

15 – How many weeks John Daly had off recovering from elbow surgery before today

5 – Gallons of milk he says he drank a week while rehabilitating

4 – Where Peter Uihlein could climb to in The Race to Dubai if he goes on to finish third alone

1 – Rory McIlroy made the only birdie of the day at the par four ninth, which ranked at a beastly 4.75 on Thursday

8 – The scores of Soren Kjeldsen and Chris Wood on the same hole

100 – The approximate footage of Graeme McDowell’s gargantuan eagle putt at the 13th
15 – The par five ranked easiest hole on Thursday at an average of 4.57

25 – The wind speed in miles per hour at points during the afternoon

13 – Players to break par on Thursday

20 – The number of shots between first and last place following the first round
