2012 Players Championship: Ian Poulter, Martin Laird Tied After First Round

Round 1 of The Players Championship has been completed, and there are a number of big name players that will need great performances in Round 2 to make the cut. Ian Poulter and Martin Laird closed the round joint top of the leaderboard, shooting seven-under par on the day. Poulter played in the morning starting on the 1st hole, and Laird played in the afternoon starting at the 10th hole.

Tiger Woods had a rough day, shooting two-over par, and he's in serious danger of missing the cut. Phil Mickelson and Lee Westwood finished the day one-under, while Luke Donald, Rory McIlroy and last week's winner Rickie Fowler all finished at even par. The Players has not been kind to the world's top ranked players so far.
