Stenson Outduels Mickelson for British Open Title
It was an unprecedented shootout. Henrik Stenson notched a 20 under par for the lowest aggregate total in a major championship after a thrilling Sunday. The Swede and Phil Mickelson watched the lead change hands seven times in the first 14 holes, the rest of the field far behind. But with a spectacular 51-foot putt on the 15th hole Stenson took control and ended up winning by three — finally breaking through for his first major after finishing in the top five seven times and enduring career-rattling slumps.
