We know Tiger Woods shot a 71 and could flirt with the cut line on Thursday if he's not careful (he's T81 after the first day). And we know Rory McIlroy leads with a 7-under 63.

But what about the rest of the stars playing this week's Honda Classic?

Here's how they fared on Day 1:

Zach Johnson (3 under, T11) -- Johnson opened with a quadruple bogey on No. 11 and somehow still shot a 3-under 67. 

Adam Scott (2 under, T21) -- It was a "could have been better" 68 from Scott on Thursday as he bogeyed two of the last five holes on his card.

Lee Westwood (2 under, T21) -- Westwood's best finish this calendar year is T20 at the Northern Trust Open so he needs something to get him going. Maybe a 68 in Round 1 will do it.

Rickie Fowler (1 under, T30) -- Pretty in pink for Oklahoma State's finest. Fowler was solid with three birdies and two bogeys. It feels like he's playing some of the better golf of his career:

Phil Mickelson (Even, T57) -- This is the best description I can give of Phil's day:

Sergio Garcia (2 over, T102) -- Garcia shot a 38 on the front nine but saved it with a 34 on the back. Otherwise he would have struggled mightily to make the cut on Friday.
