Swede Henrik Stenson secured his first Major Championship as he overcame American Phil Mickelson in record-breaking fashion in a thrilling final round of The 145th Open Championship at Royal Troon.

Stenson, coached by Swash Putting Director Phil Kenyon, came into round four with a one-shot advantage over his Ryder Cup rival but the duo were tied at the top of the leaderboard with five holes to play as they went blow-for-blow in an enthralling contest.

A birdie two on the par three 14th moved Stenson ahead and when he drained a remarkable 50-foot putt on the next hole, the pair were separated by two shots for the first time all day. A brilliant up-and-down followed to maintain the gap and Stenson birdied the last to finish at 20 under with a 63 and beat Mickelson by three shots.

As well as becoming Sweden's first Major champion, Stenson broke a host of records with the lowest total to par in Open history and the lowest ever final round by a winner. Records that will take some beating!

Congratulations to Henrik, Phil and the rest of his team. Let's make it the first of many!
