The Open Championship: Lee Westwood takes clubhouse lead

Tiger Woods looked menacing as he had two birdies in the first five holes, to get to three under, but he failed to capitalise on that with bogeys at the eighth and 11th, his putter letting him down on both occasions. The world number one stayed at one under through 16 holes.
