ATLANTA -- Tiger Woods and Henrik Stenson are taking divergent paths so far during the first round of the TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola.

Stenson, who ranks second to Woods in the FedExCup standings, has birdied five of his first seven holes, including the last four consecutively. He's 5 under and owns a one-shot lead over Billy Horschel.

Stenson's birdies have come from 8 feet, 8 inches, 4 feet, 23 inches and 10 feet.

Woods, on the other hand, is 1 over after finding the greenside bunker at the fifth hole and missing a 14-footer to save par. His best birdie chance so far came at the first hole when he missed a 6-footer.

Both Stenson and Horschel, who has finished 14 holes, are playing in the TOUR Championship for the first time. Roberto Castro, who is alone in third at 3 under through 15 hole, also is making his TOUR Championship debut -- at a course he played frequently while a student at Georgia Tech.
