(Newser) – As the Masters turned blustery, Kenny Perry surged into a share of the lead with Chad Campbell while Tiger Woods kept plodding along today, hoping to make his move on the weekend. Anthony Kim was too impatient to wait that long. The 23-year-old Californian set an Augusta National record with 11 birdies on the way to a 7-under-par 65. "To make 11 in one day is pretty special, and to do it at Augusta is incredible," Kim said.

Bouncing back from an opening 75, Kim put himself just five strokes off the lead. Perry shot a 5-under-par 67 to pull even with Campbell at 9-under 135. The first-round leader had a 70. It also was a day for nostalgia, as three-time winner Gary Player and 1979 champion Fuzzy Zoeller played their last competitive rounds at Augusta. "I had a standing ovation on all 36 holes," Player said. "How do you let people know how much you appreciate the love?"
