DORAL, FLA. (AP) - Adam Scott dealt with the wind by keeping the ball in play and had a 6-under 66 to tie for the lead with Jason Dufner in the Cadillac Championship.

Scott got off to a great start and hung on from there. Dufner played bogey free on his back-nine and birdied the last hole to catch him.

Rory McIlroy, in his first tournament at No. 1, opened with a 73. Tiger Woods made a tap-in eagle on his opening hole, but struggled the rest of the way for a 72.

The trick on a windy day at Doral was not to drop too many shots. Sergio Garcia was one shot out of the lead through 12 holes. He played the last six holes in 8 over, hitting two balls in the water for a triple bogey on the 18th.
