STOCKHOLM (AP) - British Open champion Louis Oosthuizen is tied with Richard Green for the early lead at the Scandinavian Masters after shooting a 5-under 67.
Just four days after his runaway victory at St. Andrews, Oosthuizen started full of confidence on Thursday with a birdie at the par-5, 578-yard first hole.
The South African finished the front 9 in 1-under 35. He had five more birdies on the back 9, but was unable to take the overall lead after a bogey at the 13th.
Green reached his 67 after posting three consecutive birdies from the 11th. The Australian is going for his first European Tour win since 2007.
Scottish Open champion Edoardo Molinari was one shot back after a 4-under 68.
