Hen­rik Sten­son tore the record book to shreds with prob­a­bly the finest sin­gle per­for­mance in Open Cham­pi­onship his­tory to win the Claret Jug at Royal Troon. Sten­son shot only the sec­ond 63 to win a ma­jor to edge Phil Mick­el­son’s 65 and claim the ti­tle by three strokes in an epic bat­tle be­tween the duo that left the rest of the field 14 strokes be­hind. The Swede fi­nally broke his coun­try’s duck in men’s ma­jor cham­pi­onships with a 20-un­der ag­gre­gate of 264 – both ma­jor records.
