A glance at Thursday's first round of the Masters at the 7,435-yard, par-72 Augusta National Golf Club. Leading: Englishman Lee Westwood at 5-under 67. Pursuing: South African Louis Oosthuizen and Swede Peter Hanson, tied at 68. Six golfers are another stroke back. Where's Tiger?: Tied for 29th with 15 others, including defending champion Charl Schwartzel, at even par. Shot of the day: Henrik Stenson's wild tee shot off 18, which wound up in the trees left of the fairway and began a misadventure that ended with an 8 on the hole. The Swede was 5 under and in the lead at the time. Key stat: Westwood was one of three golfers tied for the top at hitting greens in regulation - 16 of 18, or 89 percent. Noteworthy: Westwood made four birdies in a row at Nos. 5 through 8 and never needed a putt longer than 10 feet. Quoteworthy: ''It keeps on snowballing and I got the snowman at the end.'' - Stenson Television: ESPN (Friday, 3-7:30 p.m. 8-11 p.m. EDT)
