How Bill Belichick divides QB reps will be closely watched in camp. On Thursday, Tom Brady and Jimmy Garoppolo split reps 50-50 in team drills. Brady was first to play in 7-on-7, while Garoppolo took top reps in 11-on-11. At one point in no-huddle work, the fields were split and both QBs worked at the same time. Belichick said Wednesday that the team's priority is to get Garoppolo ready to go, but that Brady will be the starter upon his return in Week 5.

Rory McIlroy and Phil Mickelson are 3-over and 2-over, respectively, but perhaps the biggest surprise in their grouping is that the third member, Jason Day is 1-under through eight holes. As of this time yesterday, Day had yet to even set foot on this golf course. He played an afternoon practice round, though, and is now bogey-free so far.

Rory McIlroy sounded confident in his game and pleased with the golf course during his pre-tournament interviews, but that's not showing in his performance so far. Poor putting has largely led to three early bogeys, as the two-time PGA champion is already 3-over through seven holes.
