The first round of the 2012 BMW Championship is well under way and Rory McIlroy is atop the leaderboard.

Tiger Woods is in fifth place, one shot back of the leaders, after shooting a 65. Woods finished with nine birdies and two bogeys on Thursday. Phil Mickelson is five back after an opening-day 69 that began with a 3-under front nine, but closed with a back-and-forth back nine that saw Lefty card three bogeys to match his three birdies.

Woodstock, Vt., native Keegan Bradley is still on the course at 1-under through 15 holes. Bradley recovered from back-to-back bogeys on 13 and 14 to post a birdie on 15.
