Rory McIlroy fires 65 to take early Masters lead

The headline:  Rory McIlroy 7 under at Masters

The link:  http://sports.espn.go.com/golf/masters11/news/story?id=6303837

The summary:  Rory McIlroy shoots a -7 1st round to take the early lead at the Masters.  Tiger Woods finished his round 6 shots back at -1.

The reaction:  McIlroy’s 65 is easily the best round of the day so far but let’s face facts.  People aren’t tuning in to watch Rory McIlroy (who is a pretty darn good golfer in his own right and is currently ranked #9 in the world).  They want to see Tiger Woods.

Woods has been steady if unspectacular so far with a 1st round score of -1.  While he’s spent more time in the spotlight lately for his personal indiscretions than his golf, he certainly remains one of the favorites to do well at Augusta National this week.
