Guess Who's Playing Well at Doral?

Shhhhh... the Blue Monster was asleep on Thursday and many players posted good rounds.

Like the Golf Boys -- or at least 3/4 of them. Ben Crane isn't there. I'm blaming it on his combination of leotard and feathers from the new Golf Boys video, 2.Oh. Even the WGCs need to keep up appearances:

Five guys topped the leaderboard at -6, and Bubba Watson was one of them. He came close to winning last year, so he just picked up where he left off.

The Junkman, Freddie Jacobson (remember, that's YAH-kob-sun) also made the grade. He made two eagles in one round, which I understand is a first for him.

Sergio Garcia hit more greens than anybody else and putted like mad.

Then there was Graeme McDowell, who's been threading his driver through the narrow fairways of the Monster like a native. He didn't have any bogeys all day.

And the other guy was Tiger Woods, shooting the lowest round he's ever shot at the Monster.

Other guys are hanging around nearby -- guys like Phil Mickelson, Hunter Mahan, Peter Hanson, and Steve Stricker are a mere stroke back.

But some guys aren't doing so good. I sure didn't expect Francesco Molinari and Paul Lawrie to be at +6 after just one round. And of course Rory's still struggling -- he was +1 after the first day. At least they'll get to play all four rounds since there's no cut this week.

Plus they won't be wearing leotards and feathers. There's something to be said for that as well.
