GULLANE, Scotland (AP) — Lee Westwood has never been in better position to win his first major championship.

The 40-year-old from England takes a two-stroke lead into the final round of the British Open at Muirfield, where the weather turned a bit Sunday. It's cloudy and cooler after a warm, sunny week along the Firth of Forth.

But no rain is expected, and there's only a light breeze for the early starters. Jason Dufner took advantage of the conditions, shooting a 4-under 67. Six players have already had rounds in the 60s among the first 28 finishers.

Westwood will tee off in the last group with a 3-under 210 total. Hunter Mahan and Tiger Woods are two shots back, the only other players under par. Masters champion Adam Scott is three shots back.
