LA JOLLA, Calif. -- A year ago at the Farmers Insurance Open, Jordan Spieth missed the cut in his first start as a professional and was watching on television as Tiger Woods won his seventh career title here.

Thursday, he played alongside Woods for the first time.

What was Spieth's reaction?

"You get amped on the first tee with all the people there," he said. "It's like you're playing in one of the last couple groups Saturday or Sunday, but it's Thursday. I enjoyed it."

Then he went out and beat him, shooting a 1-under 71 to finish the opening round of the Farmers Insurance Open one stroke better than the defending champion.

Added Spieth, who made four birdies and three bogeys: "You can learn from what he's hitting off the tees and where he's leaving the ball."
