With Round 1 of the Memorial Tournament in the books, the names at the top of the leaderboard aren't necessarily your usual suspects. The only big name is arguably Jordan Spieth, who currently sits in second place at -6, one stroke off the lead.

To find the premier name you have to go down to Rickie Fowler, who is at -3. Although, Tiger Woods is lurking right behind them, with a 2-under Par 70 in Round 1, he's tied with Phil Mickelson.

Despite trailing Ryan Moore (-7) for the lead, Spieth is the clear favorite at +550 to win the tournament, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. Moore sits at +1100, also behind Patrick Cantlay (+900), who is at -4, three strokes off the lead.

Fowler has +1200 odds to win while Tiger is at +1600. Phil isn't too many strokes back, but his odds (+5000) don't reflect that.

While the leaderboard doesn't match the potential winners' odds, the next two days will be much more telling as to who will have a real chance to win by Sunday.
