Fairly nondescript first round today. The leaders are at -2, with everyone bunched up behind them. Mickelson shot +4, Woods +3, neither had a birdie. I'm rooting for Phil, who has five, count 'em five, runner-up finishes but no wins in this event; he should have won in '06 but blew it big time on the last hole, which derailed his career for a couple of years afterward. After him I'd like to see Sergio Garcia break through for his first major, or Ernie Els win his fourth major.
