AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) - Japan's Shingo Katayama has taken the lead in the opening round of the Masters, shooting a 5-under-par 67 on a day for going low at Augusta National.

Katayama, known for his flamboyant clothing and funky cowboy hats, closed with a birdie at the tough 18th hole Thursday to pull one stroke ahead of South Africa's Tim Clark for the clubhouse lead.

Kevin Sutherland and Ross Fisher of England posted 69s on a perfect day for scoring: warm and sunny with a slight breeze. Chad Campbell took advantage, starting with birdies on the first five holes.

Four-time winner Tiger Woods made par on the first three holes.
