Matt Kuchar produced a brilliant seven under par 64 to lead the BMW Championship by a shot from Ryan Moore at the end of the first round .
Kuchar who has been in great form all season with a string of top ten finishes is now 7/2 favourite with most bookies to win the BMW Championship .
Englishman Ian Poulter returned to form with a five under par 66 to stand in third place , one shot ahead of South African Retief Goosen and Charlie Wi .
Justin Rose and Luke Donald at three under and Paul Casey at two under par completed a good opening day for the English players .
The world’s top 2 both struggled as in recent weeks with Phil Mickelson shooting a one over par 72 and Tiger Woods struggling to find a fairway as he slumped to a two over par 73 .
