DORAL, Fla. (AP) -- Phil Mickelson shares first place with three
other players after the opening round of the CA Championship in
Mickelson, along with Jeev M. Singh, Retief Goosen and Prayad Marksaeng, shot an first round 7-under-par 65.
Augusta State product Oliver Wilson had a share of the lead after a birdie on 17 but hit his approach on 18 into the water and double bogeyed the hole. He's two back at -5.
In his first stroke-play event since winning the U.S. Open last
summer, Tiger Woods managed only three birdies on a Blue Monster
course where he has never finished out of the top 10. He wound up
with a 71 to tie for 40th in an 80-man field.
