The Farmers Insurance Open is through the first round, and some of the big names remain at or near the top of the field board. Rory McIlroy sits tied for third at -5, while Tiger Woods is tied for 21st at -3. Sebastian Caapelen and Keegan Bradley have jumped out to the early lead at -6.

Heading into the second round, Rory McIlroy remains the favorite in the tournament. He was the favorite at +660 heading into the tournament, and now sits at +450 after his five under round. Jon Rahm is second on the odds at +700 followed by Tiger Woods at +1000.

Woods got off to a strong start, shooting three under on the front nine. A pair of bogeys on the back nine resulted in an even score on that half of his round. Keegan Bradley and Byeong-Hun An were the only golfers in the top ten to avoid a bogey or worse in the first round.
