Masters Golf Tournament: Jason Dufner Near Top Of The LeaderBoard

The 2012 Masters is underway and some familiar names pepper the leaderboard at Augusta National. Louis Oosthuizen and Lee Westwood share the lead at -4, though Oosthuizen has finished his round and Westwood has four holes remaining to play.

Oosthuizen had never scored better than 73 at Augusta National before posting a 68 on Thursday. Oosthuizen won the 2010 British Open, while Westwood was the runner up. Westwood has consistently been one of the best golfers in the world the past decade, but he has never won a major.

Jason Dufner, a Columbus, Ohio native, is -3 after tapping in for birdie on the par-5 15th hole. Jason Day, who lives in Columbus, Ohio, shot a 76, leaving him at +4 after the opening day of play.

Tiger Woods bogied both the 17th and 18th hole to finish his round at even par. Patrick Cantlay is the low amateur so far at -2 through 17 holes.
