Rory McIlroy hasn't had much to cheer about in 2013. But the Northern Irishman shot an impressive 65 to lead Shanghai's World Golf Championships after the first round. Andrew Redington/Getty Images
Looks like a great view, right? But not for Phil Mickelson. He found the water on the eighth hole and shot a quadruple bogey. The British Open champion trails McIlroy by six shots. Ross Kinnaird/Getty Images
Justin Rose got up close and personal with fans on the 17th hole. The U.S. Open champion carded a four-under-par 68 that included a double bogey at the 11th. MARK RALSTON/AFP/Getty Images
Henrik Stenson is still smiling, even after shooting two-over-par. Not too long ago the Swede became golf's $11.4 million man after being crowned the FedEx Cup champion. Lintao Zhang/Getty Images
PGA Championship winner Jason Dufner had a mixed day. He hit an eagle on the 10th but also a double bogey and four bogeys. MARK RALSTON/AFP/Getty Images
Ian Poulter is the defending champion but has work to do to make up ground on McIlroy. Like Mickelson he ended the day at one-under-par 71. Andrew Redington/Getty Images
