Round 1 results

Completed matches

• Sergio Garcia (No. 12 seed) def. Thongchai Jaidee (53) in 20 holes. Garcia never trailed, but after losing the 18th hole, facing an elimination putt, he survived with a birdie in sudden death.

• Matt Kuchar (21) def. Hiroyuki Fujita (44) 3 and 2. Kuchar bogeyed both 12 and 14, but he had built a four-hole lead by then and rolled to an easy victory.

• Ian Poulter (11) def. Stephen Gallacher (54) 2 and 1. Poulter didn't make a birdie for 10 consecutive holes, but Gallacher's flawed play enabled Poulter to increase his lead from 1 up to 3 up in that stretch.

• Bo Van Pelt (22) def. John Senden (43) 6 and 5. After a wobbly start, picking up and losing at the No. 2 and 3 holes, Van Pelt rallied to win at the 13th green. Senden was 5 over par.

• Russell Henley (56) def. Charl Schwartzel (9) 1 up. In one of the bigger upsets, Henley held on with five successive pars to close after Schwartzel opened the day 5 over par.

• Jason Day (41) def. Zach Johnson (24) 6 and 5. In one of the most impressive rounds of the day, Day was 5 under through just 13 holes, giving Johnson no chance.

• Richard Sterne (55) def. Jason Dufner (10) 1 up. Sterne was 4 up after 11 holes even though he was even par, taking advantage of Dufner's slow start, plus-4 through 11 holes.

• Hunter Mahan (23) def. Matteo Manassero (42) 5 and 4. The defending champion had more bogeys, (four) than birdies (one), but Manassero really struggled with five straight bogeys from No. 3 to No. 7.

• Justin Rose (5) def. K.J. Choi (60) 2 and 1. With a flurry of birdies on the back side, at Nos. 11, 13 and 15, Rose put away Choi, whose late rally - 4 under from No. 6 to No. 13 - wasn't enough.

• Nicolas Colsaerts (37) def. Bill Haas (28) 5 and 4. It didn't take long for Colsaerts to assert himself, taking advantage of Haas bogeys at Nos. 3, 4 and 5, winning in a runaway.

• Tim Clark (59) def. Adam Scott (6) 2 and 1. For a guy who didn't sink a birdie putt until the 11th hole, Clark was in position to advance when Scott made back-to-back bogeys at Nos. 16 and 17.

• Thorbjorn Olesen (38) def. Jamie Donaldson (27), 3 and 2. It was a good day for Olesen, who shot 2 over par but never trailed Donaldson, who shot 41 on the front nine.

• Bubba Watson (8) def. Chris Wood (57) 2 and 1. Sizzling after the day warmed up, Watson went 6 under on Nos. 8-17, with an eagle and four birdies, to eliminate Wood.

• Jim Furyk (25) def. Ryan Moore (40) 4 and 2. The UA grad put on a move with a birdie at No. 8, and then matched that four times on the back side. Furyk sent home Moore, who never led.

• Rafael Cabrera Bello (58) def. Lee Westwood (7) in 19 holes. Bello didn't lead until the 19th hole, trailing (or tied) all day. Westwood wasn't on top of his game; he had four bogeys to neutralize his four birdies.

• Martin Kaymer (26) def. George Coetzee (39) 2 and 1. In one of the day's closest matches, Kaymer eagled No. 13 to take a 2-up lead but needed a birdie at 17 to close out Coetzee.

• Marcus Fraser (52) def. Keegan Bradley (13) 1 up. Bradley's approach shot on 18 hit the rocks in front of the green. He had a poor back nine, with four bogeys in a row, leading to an early flight home.

• Fredrik Jacobson (45) def. Ernie Els (20) 1 up. The Big Easy missed a short putt at 18, wasting a back-nine rally in which birdies at Nos. 13 and 15 tied the match.

• Steve Stricker (14) def. Henrik Stenson (51) 5 and 4. It wasn't that Stricker was in the groove - he was just 1 under par - but Stenson bogeyed holes one through three and was down four holes at the turn.

• Nick Watney (19) def. David Toms (46) 5 and 4. Few had a more difficult day at Dove Mountain than Toms. The former Match Play champion was 6 over par through 14 holes, without a birdie on his card.

• Alexander Noren (49) def. Dustin Johnson (16) 6 and 4. Noren was superb Thursday, putting a bogey at No. 1 behind him and then stringing seven birdies over the next 12 holes to win easily.

• Graeme McDowell (17) def. Padraig Harrington (48) 2 up. McDowell blew a 3-up lead at 11, but won when Harrington made a mess of the 18th hole. Harrington had three straight birds on the back nine to get close.

• Webb Simpson (15) def. David Lynn (50) 5 and 4. The defending U.S. Open champion rolled in five birdies, taking a 3-up lead at the turn, bumping off Lynn, who ended the 14-hole match 4 over par.

• Peter Hanson (18) def. Thomas Bjorn (47) 3 and 2. Trailing by two holes at the turn, Hanson birdied four of the next six holes, and Bjorn, who didn't have a birdie all day, couldn't keep up.

• Louis Oosthuizen (4) def. Richie Ramsay (61) 2 and 1. In one of the day's top rallies, Oosthuizen was two down through 11. He then was opportunistic as Ramsay had three bogeys down the stretch.

• Robert Garrigus (36) def. Branden Grace (29) 4 and 3. A double-bogey at No. 10 was the only scar on Garrigus' card; he had six birds to close out Grace, who opened with back-to-back bogeys.

• Luke Donald (3) def. Marcel Siem (62) 1 up. Donald sunk a 10-foot birdie putt at 18 to end the suspense. It was his sixth birdie of the day, but he had a difficult time shaking Siem, who had five birds himself.

• Scott Piercy (35) def. Paul Lawrie (30) 4 and 3. With an eagle at No. 2, Piercy established early momentum and had no less than a two-hole pad the rest of the way.

• Shane Lowry (64) def. Rory McIlroy (1) 1 up. The world's No. 1 golfer was 4 over par through seven holes and, although he grabbed the lead after nine holes, couldn't survive Lowry's birdie-birdie-eagle streak on Nos. 11-13.

• Charles Howell III (63) def. Tiger Woods (2) 2 and 1. Howell's clutch birdies at 15 and 16 and a bogey-free card were too much for Woods, who couldn't create any magic. He carded just two birdies all day.

Matches not completed

• Carl Pettersson (33) is 1 up on Rickie Fowler (32) through 17 holes.

• Gonzalo Fernandez-Castaño (31) and Francesco Molinari (34) are all-square through 15 holes.
