CARNOUSTIE, Scotland (AP) Joe Durant birdied the par-4 18th hole Friday for a 3-under 68 and a share of the Senior British Open lead with Kohki Idoki.

The 52-year-old Durant birdied three of the first five holes on the back nine, the second two on the par-5 12th and 14th at Carnoustie Golf Links in 10-15 mph wind with some light rain.

"It is difficult, especially if you keep hitting your tee shots wayward," Durant said. "But if you keep it in play and give yourself some opportunities, the greens are big, so you can hit some greens, but you have to have good pace on your long putts, too. It can be very difficult. We've been fortunate it has not blown real hard, but if the wind kicks up, this course is all you want."
