British Open leaderboard 2013: Lee Westwood charges, but few scoring at Muirfield

Andrew Redington

Zach Johnson hasn't teed off yet, but his competition isn't giving him much to sweat about. Not many players in the clubhouse early managed to find themselves under par.

Muirfield is proving just as challenging on the second day of The Open Championship as the first, which is great news for Zach Johnson, as no golfers have posed a challenge to his lead at 5-under thus far in Round 2.

Of the 31 golfers already in the clubhouse on the day, only eight managed rounds below par. That's rough going, even when compared with an opening round when competitors struggled with Muirfield's long, fast-rolling greens and violent roughs. Only 14 players are currently under par on the tournament, led by Johnson, who has yet to tee off on Day 2.

The best performer thus far is Lee Westwood, who had gotten himself into a tie for the lead at 5-under following six birdies through his first twelve holes, but fell back to 2-under for the championship with three bogies coming in, including one on the 18th, which Mark Sandritter wrote was one of the finest and toughest finishing holes in golf. Westwood is joined by Henrik Stenson and Phil Mickelson in a tie for sixth at 2-under, three strokes back of Johnson.

As for Tiger Woods, he's 1-over on the day, with bogeys on 4, 8, and 11 offsetting a strong start with birdies on 3 and 5. He's still within an arms' length of the lead, four strokes back, but it isn't an ideal situation.

Sergio Garcia and Padraig Harrington are amongst those who appear to have shot themselves over the cut line, which is projected to be at 4-over. Garcia shot a 2-over to put him at 6-over on the tournament, while Harrington was 4-over to put him at 6-over, too.
