Mercedes Championships

So the PGA Tour started off yesterday with the Mercedes Championship in Kapalua, Hawaii.

Not the worst location to start with. But as the winter break was pretty short, some stars like Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Retief Goosen decided to stay on vacation to get some extra days with their loved ones.

Olin Browne leads with the field with a 69, but that's the highest first-round pacesetter since the event moved to Kapalua. The 7,411-yard Plantation Course has been reworked, the contours of 8 greens had been changed and all the greens reseeded with a different grass. In the first round, only nine players managed to break par.

Latest news and the leaderboard can be found on the PGA website.
