Henrik Stenson wins The Open at Royal Troon

Henrik Stenson has become the first Swede to win The Open after his incredible victory at Royal Troon. On a remarkable day that will go down in golfing history, Stenson carded a final round 63 to finish on a record-breaking score of -20.

Phil Mickelson’s incredible opening round at The Open had led to many assuming he was a shoe-in to take home the Claret Jug, however Stenson had other ideas. Mickelson finished on -17 on Sunday after an epic duel with the Swede with JB Holmes was 11 shots behind Mickelson in third place.
