After the first day of the 2012 Players Championship from the TPC at Sawgrass on Thursday, Keegan Bradley and Scott Stallings both finished their day with an even par 72. They are both tied for 56th.
Bradley, the Vermont native, had four birdies and four bogies on the day. Stallings, the Worcester, MA native, shot four birdies, two bogies and one double bogey (on 12) on Thursday. Bradley's looking to improve on his finish at the 2011 tournament where he finished 72nd after shooting 5-over-par. The 2012 Players Championship is the first appearance in this particular tournament for Stallings.
Bradley and Stallings both trail the co-leaders, Martin Laird and Ian Poulter, by seven shots as they shot 7-under-par on Thursday. Last year's winner K.J. Choi shot a 3-over-par 75 and is tied for 114th place.
