AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) - David Lynn is getting used to running near the front at major championships.

Last year, in his just his second major, Lynn was the runner-up to Rory McIlroy in the PGA Championship.

On Thursday, Lynn shot a 4-under 68 in his Masters debut, leaving him just two strokes behind early leader Marc Leishman.

Lynn's moment at Augusta has been 17 years in the making.

A longtime member of the European Tour, he managed one win - in 2004 - before his performance at Kiawah Island changed everything. Even though he finished eight strokes behind McIlroy, he cashed an $865,000 check, moved to the PGA Tour, and began prepping for the Masters.
