Tiger Woods is flirting with another missed cut after a slow start at the 2012 Players Championship, but he's not the only big name having a tough day. While things aren't going poorly for the world's top-ranked players, none of them are surging up the leaderboard. All of Lee Westwood, Rory McIlroy and Phil Mickelson are at one-under par near the end of their front nine. Martin Kaymer, Luke Donald and Steve Stricker are all at even par, while Hunter Mahan is two-over.
The current leader of the tournament is Ian Poulter, who finished his round with an impressive seven-under 65. He's followed by Blake Adams at six-under, while Kevin Na and Ben Crane are five-under. The player with the biggest chance to make a surge up the leaderboard is Martin Laird, who is four-under through his first nine holes. Adam Scott, who is three-under through nine holes, is the biggest name within four strokes of Poulter.
