High winds and torrential rain slowed Bernhard Langer's quest for a record 10th senior major title at the British Open at Royal Porthcawl in Wales on Friday with only one player breaking par.

Lehman, the Claret Jug victor in 1996, carded a one-over-par 72, birdieing the last to join Langer in a share of the clubhouse lead just moments after the nine-time Senior major victor also made a gain on the 18th to sign for a three-over 74. "It was blowing 25 (mph) with rain - it was just miserable", Langer told europeantour.com.

King, who had missed the cut in his two previous appearances in the event, added a 78 to his opening 77 on a day when the Welsh course was battered by wind and rain.

"It was just very hard to do anything".

Just one golfer in the 144-man field, Santiago Luna, carded an under par round on Friday.

Langer leads on one-over along with former Open champion Tom Lehman, as well two other Americans in Billy Mayfair and Steve Flesch plus Argentina's Mauricio Molina. "There's a lot of golf to be played".

"Golf is about momentum, and if you can get off to a good start in bad weather and you can find some kind of rhythm where you're plodding along, making pars, and managing, then you can deal with conditions like that", said Lehman.

Mike Goodes, Peter Lonard and David McKenzie are four over par, one shot ahead of a clutch of players in a share of tenth place, including Newport's Phillip Price, the most recent victor on the Senior Tour, two-time senior major champion Roger Chapman and 2010 Ryder Cup captains Colin Montgomerie and Corey Pavin.
