Justin Rose needs a lot of help this week to win the FedExCup, but if he keeps dropping birdie bombs from Macon, Georgia, he may find himself in a position to win the Tour Championship come Sunday afternoon.

Despite getting off to a less-than-stellar start -- two bogeys in his first seven holes -- Rose figured out the greens over his last 11 holes, carding 5 birdies to grab a share of the lead with Tiger Woods at 4-under after the first round.

While Rose had a number of highlights during his round, there's no question his 52-foot birdie putt on the 18th topped the list. Not only did it give Rose a share of the lead and a spot in the final group on Friday with Tiger Woods, it was, according to Justin Ray, also the longest putt he's made all year on the PGA Tour. Needless to say, Rose couldn't have picked a better time to make a lengthy birdie putt.
