AT&T National - Tiger's Tournament day one

 Day one of the Tiger Woods hosted AT&T National, Joe Ogilvie is tied for first with Jim Furyk.

AT&T National - Tiger's Tournament day one After Tiger Woods opened the pro-am on the 4th of July with the military and the former President George H. W. Bush, on Thursday the chase for the AT&T National Tour trophy was on.

 Joe Ogilvie is atop the leaderboard at the AT&T National PGA Tour, after Round One on Thursday. Ogilvie is tied with K.J. Choi, Jim Furyk, Stuart Appleby and Vijay Singh, all of them with four under par 66. The host of the AT&T National, Tiger Woods, is tied at 79th with 3-over, but the champ has nothing to worry about, just yet.

 Phil Mickelson, who started on the back nine, tied for 94th with 4-over-par 74. But Mickelson declined to blame it on his injured wrist, and justified the Day 1 with "I was a little rusty. Last week I thought I was playing pretty well. Today I thought I hit a reasonable number of good shots but I scored terrible." Mickelson injured his wrist at the Oakmont last month, and was forced to withdraw from the Memorial Tournament in Dublin, Ohio, because of the injury.

 Quick look at the oddsmakers, and Jim Furyk has been upgraded as the favorite by the U.K. online bookmaker Bet365, followed by Vijay Singh and Tiger Woods. The North American bookie Bodog Sports still has Tiger Woods at 3/1 to win the AT&T National PGA Tour, compared with Jim Furyk with odds 11/1.

 AT&T National will resume on Friday, tee-time 7:10am, gates will open at 6:00am, all times Eastern.
