Seung-Yul Noh has taken the lead after the first day of play at the 2012 Deutsche Bank Championship, sitting 9-under par and two strokes ahead of Tiger Woods. Chris Kirk sits between the two men, in second place at 8-under.
Noh had a strong day but doesn't have much experience at the front of the pack. He has only one top-10 finish in his career, finishing ninth at the 2012 Wells Fargo Championship in May. Woods has plenty of experience out front, but recently has been unable to take successful opening rounds and carry them through the weekend.
Dustin Johnson had one of the better days for Florida based golfers. The Jupiter, Fla. native shot 4-under par, leaving him tied for 10th place. Baghdad, Fla. native Bubba Watson wasn't so successful, shooting 4-over to land in 96th place.
