The opening round of the Tour Championship is in the books and it's no surprise to see red-hot Henrik Stenson in the lead with a six under par 64.

However, his playing partner did not fare as well. Even though Tiger Woods went into the crowning event of the 2013 golf season with the No. 1 FedEx playoff rating, he struggled from start to finish and shot a three-over 73.

Tiger didn't make a single birdie in the round, the first time since the 2010 U.S. Open he has failed to do that.

Stenson has a one-shot lead over Adam Scott, who got hot on the back nine and shot a 65. Billy Horschel and Steve Stricker are two strokes back.
