AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — Lee Westwood might be wondering if he's contending for a green jacket or the claret jug.
In search of his first major title, Westwood bundled up in long sleeves and returned to the course Friday at the Masters — a day that felt more like a British Open.
He started his day with five pars to stay in the lead after being greeted by blustery winds and temperatures in the 50s — about a 25-degree contrast to opening day when he shot 5-under-par 67 to take a one-shot advantage over Louis Oosthuizen and Peter Hanson.
Oosthuizen struggled in the weather, making the turn at 3-over 39 to fall off the leaderboard.
Ben Crane, meanwhile, birdied the par-5 second to move to 4 under, tied for second place with Jason Dufner, the Auburn graduate who played his morning round in a stocking cap.
Zach Johnson, Bubba Watson and Jim Furyk were next at 3 under. Furyk, the only player to finish the first round without a bogey, promptly broke that streak on No. 1 on Friday, but followed that with two straight birdies to get to 3 under.
