The World Golf Championship lived up to its name on Thursday. 65 of the top golfers in the world descended on Trump Doral Golf Resort and Spa in Miami and the top of the leaderboard is full with some of golf's biggest names including several local golfers.

Tiger Woods (Jupiter Island) and Freddie Jacobson (Hobe Sound) both shot 6-under 66s in the first round and share the lead with defending Masters Champion, Bubba Watson, 2010 US Open Champion, Graeme McDowell, and Sergio Garcia. Several other big names are not far behind, with Phil Mickelson and Hunter Mahan leading a group of four golfers one off of the lead at -5.

Keegan Bradley (Bears Club) and Dustin Johnson (Loxahatchee River) are just two shots back, both firing rounds of 4-under 68. Johnson’s neighbor on the river Rickie Fowler shot a 69 in his opening round and is just three shots behind the leaders.

New Palm Beach Gardens residents, Luke Donald and Louis Oosthuizen, kept themselves in contention after both shooting round of 2-under par.

Not all of the local golfers had a great opening day though. Rory Mcllroy (Bears Club), Lee Westwood (Old Palm), and Ernie Els (Jupiter) all struggled to get anything going in their opening rounds and finished the day +1. For Mcllroy he failed to break par for the sixth consecutive round.

All 65 golfers return to the course Friday for round two. For complete coverage and up to the minute score updates visit www.worldgolfchampionships.com/cadillac-championship.html.
