Two closing par-5 holes should provide a few opportunities for some of the longer hitters to post red numbers, but the threesome of Rory McIlroy, Phil Mickelson and Jason Day just played 17 and 18 in a combined 1-over, with five pars and a bogey (by Mickelson on the 18th).

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.
