SHANGHAI, China -- Luke Guthrie handled another day of strong wind and kept his distance in the BMW Masters with a 1-under 71, giving the American a four-shot lead going into the weekend of his first golf tournament in Asia. Douglas Costa Jersey . Guthrie never let anyone get closer than two shots at Lake Malaren on Friday, and he started to pull away with a 20-foot birdie that broke three ways on the 17th. But he misjudged the speed of the 18th green on a long chip and narrowly missed a 10-foot par putt on the final hole. That put him at 8-under 136, four shots clear of six players. Ricardo Gonzalez didnt make a bogey until the final hole and still had a 67, the lowest round of the day. Also in a tie for second were Scott Jamieson (68), Paul Casey, Thongchai Jaidee and Craig Lee, who each shot 70. Simon Dyson, also tied for second Friday, was disqualified for a rules violation that was discovered Saturday morning. In the second round, he marked his ball just beyond the cup on No. 8. As he marked it, Dyson made a quick move to tamp down a spot on the green directly in his line. That violates Rule 16-1a. The infraction was pointed out to European Tour rules officials, who spoke to Dyson. Because he did not add the two-shot penalty, he was disqualified for signing an incorrect scorecard. The disqualification was a big blow to the Englishman. He was No. 66 on the money list. Only the top 60 are eligible for the final event in Dubai. John Daly showed plenty of power but couldnt make a putt in his round of 74, which included a double bogey-birdie-bogey finish. He was six shots behind. For two days, Guthries first big trip in golf has been more than he could have imagined. He closed with a 64 in Las Vegas to tie for fifth and flew straight to Shanghai, leaving him just enough time to get over jet lag and see the Jack Nicklaus design. He didnt bring enough warm clothes, but at least he brought his game. He received a sponsors exemption more than a month ago, wanting to broaden his experience and learn to become a global golfer. It already is paying off. The relentless wind brought a drop in temperatures, yet Guthrie played the round in short sleeves. "I should have looked (the weather) up about Shanghai before I came here," he said. "I only have one sweater here. Im wearing blue and pink today, so Im kind of out there already. I didnt want to put a green sweater on top of it. So I just dealt with being a little cold." There has been nothing cold about his game. Guthrie made his first bogey of the tournament with a tee shot that left him against the lip of a fairway bunker on No. 5, and he had to knock it out to the fairway. He dropped another shot on the 10th, and hit a poor shot that left him in an impossible spot on the 12th. Everything else, however, was solid. He rolled in a 15-foot birdie on the 11th, got up-and-down behind the green on the par-5 15th for a birdie and hit 6-iron into 20 feet on the 17th. Two more days like this and he could be staying in China longer than he planned. The BMW Masters is the start of "The Final Series" on the European Tour, four tournaments with at least $7 million in prize money that concludes the Race to Dubai. Guthrie, coming off his rookie season on the U.S. PGA Tour, has no stake in that. A win, however, would make him eligible for the HSBC Champions next week in Shanghai, a World Golf Championship that counts toward the FedEx Cup on the U.S. circuit. Only 18 players in the 77-man field were under par, a testament to the tough conditions. Rafa Cabrera-Bello didnt expect to be among them until he ran off five straight birdies late in his round for a 68, leaving him five shots behind. Ian Poulter got back in the game until two late bogeys forced him to settle for a 69. Poulter was at 1-under 143, along with Rory McIlroy, who bogeyed the last hole for a 72, and Lee Westwood (71). Graeme McDowell, in his first event since getting married at the end of September, was trying to push his way up the leaderboard until he bogeyed three of his last five. "Its been very tough the last two days in the wind," Casey said. "These are not conditions I expected or wanted. But it makes a very good, difficult golf course even more so. Its a great test of golf, which is I guess what we want. This is the Final Series for us in Europe. Its meant to be difficult." Willian Brazil Jersey . -- Stanley Johnson scored all 18 of his points in the second half, T. Douglas Costa Brazil Jersey . Villar connected off Joe Saunders (11-14), sending a drive well over the left-field fence for his first career homer. The Astros scored six times in the first three innings to chase Saunders. http://www.officialbrazilstore.com/world-cup-cassio-football-jersey/ . Canada wasnt in the game from the outset. Head coach Dan Church left Calgary in the morning without addressing the players. He told The Canadian Press he felt the organization lacked confidence in his ability to defend the Olympic gold medal in February.GLENEAGLES -- Two years after the "Miracle of Medinah," its not just the Americans seeking redemption at the Ryder Cup. Graeme McDowell holed the winning putt for Europe at Celtic Manor in 2010 but was a peripheral figure in Medinah, earning one point from four matches as his partnership with Rory McIlroy struggled. Europes come-from-behind victory, from 10-5 down at one stage on Saturday evening, has gone down in lore but it was tinged with disappointment for the Northern Irishman. "I was low on energy," McDowell said, "I was physically not where I needed to be and that became evident as the week went on." He has been desperate to make amends ever since. McDowell has experienced it all at the Ryder Cup -- the first shot (2012), the last shot (10) and everything in between. But the man who says he "embraces high-pressure scenarios" took a backward step in the singles at Medinah, placing himself in the middle of thhe draw on the Sunday and losing 2 and 1 to Zach Johnson. Willian Jersey. "Perhaps I needed that little bit of intensity of the last groups," he said. "Perhaps come Sunday, if its needed, I will put myself a little bit further down the order and ask the question of myself and focus my mind again." McDowell isnt short of galvanizing influences. A month ago, his wife, Kristin, gave birth to their first child, Vale Esme, and McDowell tied for 36th in his only tournament since -- the BMW Championship in Colorado. He is counting on a "delayed nappy (diaper) effect" kicking in for his fourth straight Ryder Cup at Gleneagles. "By the time I got to Denver, I actually experienced a little bit of a flat, a little bit of a downer," McDowell said. "But Ive come to terms with that, Ive come to terms with the fact that sleeping is done, is gone forever. And I arrive here this week feeling fresh and ready to go."
