This is the second year that the nines have been reversed at East Lake, meaning instead of finishing on a tough par-3, the 18th is now a par-5, which played 586 yards on Thusday. Daniel Berger was the only player to make eagle during the opening round, hitting a 350-yard tee shot and knocking his approach to 13 feet. Berger is two shots behind leader Kyle Stanely.

It's no secret that Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas are good friends, a relationship dating back more than a decade. They also enjoy competing alongside each other, which is good, because it's been happening an awful lot lately. With early-round tee times for FedEx Cup playoff events based on the points list, they've played together seven times in the past four weeks. On Thursday at the Tour Championship, each one posted a 3-under 67 playing in the day's final twosome. Unlike other events, this one re-pairs after the opening round, but due to their identical scores, the result won't change: Spieth and Thomas will play an eighth round together during these playoffs on Friday, teeing it up at 1:30 p.m. ET.

Jason Sobel ESPN Senior Writer 

Kyle Stanley has endured some narrow misses in trying to qualify for the Tour Championship, including being 31st on the points list five years ago, but his maiden voyage to East Lake has been worth the wait so far. Stanley opened with a 6-under 64 to grab a two-stroke lead, though one he couldn't quite explain after the round. "It's been a goal to be here," he said. "Once we accomplished that, it's not like all the stress goes away or anything. You still want to come here and play really well. I guess it kind of frees you up a little bit, being a small field and you can come in here and play pretty aggressively."

There were only 3 bogey free rounds at the Tour Championship Thursday. Dustin Johnson (-2), Gary Woodland (-3), and Brooks Koepka (-4). Koepka's bogey free round was made more interesting considering he hit a tee shot that got stuck in a tree! The reigning U.S. Open champ also explained why he's playing so well here this week.

The projections will undoubtedly change, but after the first round of the Tour Championship, Jordan Spieth would be the FedEx Cup champion if it ended today. His opening 67 and tie for sixth kept him atop the standings. Tournament leader Kyle Stanley vaulted into second, with Justin Thomas, Dustin Johnson and Jon Rahm following. At the very least, Stanley would need to win the Tour Championship and have Spieth finish no better than tied for 18th to win the FedEx.

After a strong summer that saw him finish tied for second at the U.S. Open, win the WGC-Bridgestone and tie for fifth at the PGA, Hideki Matsuyama is in a rut. The Japaenese star has struggled in the playoffs, with a best finish a tie for 23rd and a missed cut. On Thursday, he opened the Tour Championship with a 5-over 75 and is 29th in the 30-player field.

Russell Henley is a diehard Atlanta Braves fan and Wednesday night he was at SunTrust Park, decked out in team gear, leading the fans in an official version of the Tomahawk Chop. Apparently that sparked a rally for him, too. Henley opened his Tour Championship campaign with three bogeys in his first seven holes, but six birdies in his last 11 to post a 3-under 67 that vaulted him near the top of the early leaderboard.

PGA Tour pros Russell Henley and Jhonattan "Johnny" Vegas get the crowd at Sun Trust Stadium jacked up doing "The Chop" for the Atlanta Braves in there game vs. the Washington Nationals. Both players are in Atlanta for the PGA Tour's Tour Championship being played at East Lake Golf Club.
