Right now? A lot of people. There are eight golfers at 1-under at the moment.Luke Donald was briefly at 2-under through 3 holes, but gave a shot back on the fourth.

However, about half the field hasn’t even teed off yet, so it’s still VERY early on Day 1.

TV coverage will be on ESPN today and tomorrow, but you can follow the leaderboard here.

10:26 UPDATE: Johan Edfors of Sweden has 4 birdies on the front nine to pull ahead of the pack at 3-under. Countryman Fredrik Jacobson is at -2.

11:30 UPDATE: Ryan Palmer just broke the log jam at the top of the leaderboard. He’s at -3 with 4 more players (including Edfors) at -2.

3:00 UPDATE: Y.E. Yang is the clubhouse leader at 3-under, but Francesco Molinari has matched that score after just 4 holes. Louis Oosthuizen and Ryan Palmer finished at 2-under, followed by a large pack of -1s.

5:30 UPDATE: Rory McIlroy (-5) has opened up a two-shot on lead on the rest of the field. He’s still working on the back (really front) nine.
