Here are the highlights for round 1 and tee times for the favorites.
Lee Westwood sits atop the leaderboard, tied with Ryan Palmer & Kevin Chapell at -6 after shooting a sweet 65.
Westwood appeared confident and relaxed as he blazed through the first 18 holes: it remains to be seen if he can sustain this style of play the rest of the way.
Westwood will tee off at 1:25 P.M. (EST) with Adam Scott & Jordan Spieth.
Golden boy Rory Mcllroy continued his impressive style of play as we predicted he would, finding himself just one stroke off the lead at -5 after shooting a 66.
He is still the clear favorite and is the player to watch at this time.
Mcllroy will tee off at 8:35 A.M. (EST) with Martin Kaymer and Bubba Watson once again.
Tiger Woods, on the other hand, played about as badly as many feared he would due to nagging back issues. He shot a 74 for round 1, putting him at 3 over.
Tiger managed just 1 birdie in the round and appeared a bit stiff in his swing. It s obvious that he is not 100% and appears highly unlikely he will advance.
Tiger has a 1:35 P.M. (EST) tee time alongside Phil Mickelson and Padraig Harrington again.
Mickelson, who last won this championship in 2005 shot a 69, putting him t -2 and just 4 strokes off the lead.
Mickelson started off a little shaky but finished strong on the back 9, giving him positive momentum heading into round 2.
