The tournament began on Thursday, as 43 groups of three teed off with the hopes of getting a piece of the $6,000,000 purse. Of the top names, Keegan Bradley, Rickie Fowler, Justin Rose and Lee Westwood all took home six figures from Champion Course.

However, two of the more well-knowns, Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy, had less than stellar exits from this weekend's tournament. Woods left with an uninspiring 4-over par (74), while McIlroy just...left. Neither one showed up in one of the biggest annual golf tournaments.
