Cameron Smith

Cameron Smith, the winner of the 2022 Players Championship, who entered the event as one of the favourites, lived up to his reputation as he posted 4-under 68 in round one to finish solo second at the first major tournament of the 2022 season.

Four golfers, including World No. Scottie Scheffler were at tied-3rd after all four posted 3-under 69s.

The 2-time PGA Tour winner Im had brilliant first-nine holes, where he smashed flawless 4-under 32. He then lost control on the 10th and 11th, which resulted in two consecutive bogeys, but a par on the 12th and an eagle on the 13th helped him to reach 4-under, and with three pars and one more birdie, he ended his day one at 5-under 67.

Tiger Woods

The big cat Tiger Woods, who returned to competitive golf after almost one and a half years, shot a decent 1-under 71 to lie at tied-10th heading into round two.

Pre-tournament favourite Jon Rahm had a dreary first round in which he posted 2-over 74 to be placed tied-43rd.

Many big players, including the former Masters' Tournament winners Jordan Spieth and Patrick Reed, were also at the tied-43rd position.
