A few quotes from day 1 of the AT&T National (courtesy ESPN and AP)...

...and here's a look at the Leaderboard

Tiger Woods (+3 T81)

"I just putted awful, really. My speed was good, but I never hit the ball on line. It was a very frustrating day on the greens, especially how good I was driving it. I was driving it on a string all day."

"If I keep hitting it like this, I'll be fine. Putts will start going in."

Arjun Atwal (-4 T1)

"Four under, I think, is a great score for me or anybody on this golf course. I'll take it every day."

"As far as comparing myself with him ... it's strange, because we practice and play every day, so I've stopped doing that. Initially, when I used to practice and play with him, I used to compare myself. But now, it's just ... whatever. He's always helped me if I have any questions about short game or whatever it is. He's always been there."


After Round 1, any golfer is poised to make a run tomorrow to make the cut, but there are some big names well off the lead and potential cut line (+2).

Tiger Woods (+3), Y.E. Yang (+5), Notah Begay II (+5), Davis Love III (+8)
