The big round means Hadwin has +2500 to win the tournament and is tied with Justin Rose as the #9 favorite after the first round. His chances are significantly higher than Rory McIlroy’s after McIlroy is one of the many players who hit back.

Both Thomas and Rahm shot 1 under 69. Overall, 25 players shot below par on the first day of the tournament, and 42 players finished even or better.

Matt Fitzpatrick and Dustin Johnson scored 68 points each and are also in the top five after the first round. Fitzpatrick has +1200 to win his first major and Johnson has +1600.

On the other hand, Phil Mickelson was the most famous golfer who had a terrible round on Thursday. Mickelson got 78 and is no longer in the BetMGM standings. It won’t be easy for Mickelson to just break through. He will need to play well on Friday and force a lot of players to back off.

Here’s a look at the favorites after the first round.
