Stenson lands first major with British Open triumph
TROON, Scotland (Reuters) - Sweden's Henrik Stenson claimed the first major victory of his career when he won the British Open on Sunday.
The world number six shot a brilliant closing eight-under-par 63 to finish 20-under on 264, three ahead of second-placed American Phil Mickelson.
The 40-year-old Stenson's winning total also represented a new record for golf's oldest major.
