Jason Dufner and David Lingmerth are more benign than the sneaky-hard conditions that greeted the field on Thursday at Muirfield Village Golf Club. “I just try to stay even keel. That works for me,” said Dufner, who matched Lingmerth’s 7-under-par 65 during a first round played in weather that felt like a vacation in San Diego.
