Justin Rose believes that the conditions during his first round at Augusta were the toughest he has had to content with at the Masters. John Starks Jersey . The Englishman shot a three-under par 69 to finish three shots behind clubhouse leader Jordan Spieth.And Rose feels that, if the greens firm up, nine-under may be enough to claim to Green Jacket on Sunday.In terms of the conditions, the weather conditions, Id say its the most breeze I think Ive ever played in here at Augusta, he said.2007, I think we had maybe similar conditions. We had cold, windy conditions, and because of that the low humidity really dried out the golf course and that made it incredibly tough.So barring the rain that happened this morning, I think that that was probably equally as tough as 07. Just the rain that softened up the course made it playable today.But with the forecast the next couple days maybe being as windy, I think this place is going to dry out very quickly and become much more difficult. Justin Rose shot a three-under 69 in his first round Given those tricky conditions, Rose argued that the score required to win may not be as low as some might expect.I think it wouldnt take much if the greens firm up to think that nine-under par could still win this golf tournament, added last years runner-up.You see six-under and you think, well, theres not much progress from there, but thats quite feasible at this point.Sunday looks nice, so that might be a day to play catch-up for a few guys. Who knows? But thats feasible for sure.Meanwhile, Roses fellow Englishman Paul Casey also finished on three-under but joked that playing partner Jordan Spieth had made his round look rather less impressive. Paul Casey said the timing of shots is very important after shooting an impressive 69 on his opening round It feels great, then you look at who I just played with and he made it look very average! he told Sky Sports.Casey revealed that the toughest thing, given the gusty conditions on the course, was choosing when to actually strike the ball.Pretty much everybody here knows how to play the holes, the yardage are pretty straightforward to get, he added.Its picking a time in space to pull the trigger because the difference one minute to the next, or every second with the way the wind is swirling through the trees is very difficult. The same shot executed at a different time is a drastically different result. Ian Poulter joined Paul Casey and Justin Rose on three under par Ian Poulter joined his fellow countrymen on three-under after recovering back back-to-back bogeys on 10 and 11 to birdie three of the next five holes.That was tricky out there today, you want to take care of all the par fives, he said. I played lovely on the front nine, [there were] just two or three putts for the day which were a little bit frustrating.Had I not have done that then Id have been a bit higher up the board but its a good start. Its probably one of my best starts at the Masters. Lee Westwood was pleased with his opening round after finishing one-under-par at Augusta. Lee Westwood also remarked on the wind after a first round 71.Its tough out there, the Englishman, who is still seeking his first major title, said of the swirling winds at Augusta. Very tricky.The flags, considering that there was going to be wind, they werent by any means easy, so Im delighted to be under par for the most part. Get a Sky Sports Week Pass Dont miss the Masters.
