Now that you know when everyone is teeing off, let's make a few predictions about Friday's action.
Paul Lawrie Will Play His Way to the Top
Lawrie played a very solid first round and finished with a 65. That puts him one stroke behind leader Adam Scott.
Lawrie had six birdies overall, including a three-birdie stretch from holes three to five. He seemed to get stronger as the day progressed. He didn't make many spectacular shots, but he played consistent golf.
Lawrie's ability to stick around will come in handy. You will find him at the top of the leaderboard when Friday's action draws to a close.
Tiger Woods Will Continue Playing Well
Woods is three-under par through one round of play. He played remarkably at times, and he kept mistakes to a minimum.
He's currently tied for sixth place. By the end of Round 2 he will be no lower than four. He's driving the ball exceptionally well, and when Woods has his drive going the rest of his game usually follows suit. I'm not saying he's going to win that elusive 15th Major, but he's going to stick around entering this weekend's action.
If Woods plays like he did between holes one and seven on Thursday, he could steal the show on Friday. He won't grab first place, but Woods will have the golf world buzzing before Friday is over.
Phil Mickelson Will Struggle
"Lefty" has been struggling for awhile. He didn't make the cut at the Memorial Tournament or the Greenbrier Classic, and he finished tied for 65th at the US Open.
After one day of play Mickelson is tied for 99th place. He's three-over par, and he just isn't playing well. There's no other way to put it.
Mickelson's struggles hit a fever pitch on hole No. 7. He shot an ironic seven.
He bogeyed four holes overall, and he only managed to secure one birdie. He was inconsistent and didn't leave much room for optimism moving forward in this tournament.
Mickelson's slump was a storyline entering this tournament, and it's not going to go away. He just doesn't have it right now.
Expect his name to stay in the bottom half of the leaderboard.
