Stenson too good for Mickelson on final day of The Open

Swedish golfer Henrik Stenson bagged his maiden Major title with a three-stroke victory over Phil Mickelson after the fourth round at the British Open at the Royal Troon Golf Club here on Sunday.

The world No.6 Swede came into the final round with a one-shot advantage over his American 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.


Thongchai signs off with a 71 at The Open, vows to return

Thai veteran star Thongchai Jaidee ended his campaign at The Open with a level par 71 and a top-30 finish on Sunday but vowed to keep coming back in his attempt to win the oldest tournament in the world.

The triple Asian Tour number one shot three birdies against as many bogeys at Royal Troon for a tournament aggregate of one-over-par 285 and failed to improve on his best Open outing of tied 13th achieved in 2009. 


Lahiri has disastrous final round at The Open

India’s Anirban Lahiri signed off from The Open with an eight-over-par 79 to conclude a disappointing campaign on Sunday.

The reigning Asian Tour number one dropped six bogeys and one double bogey at blustery Royal Troon for a four-day total of 12-over-par 296. It was also his highest score in the world’s oldest Major.


Anirban Lahiri struggles on Day 3 at The Open

India’s Anirban Lahiri was disillusioned after stumbling to a disappointing five-over-par 76 in the third round of The Open on Saturday. The reigning Asian Tour number one struggled on the greens on yet another blustery day at Royal Troon, needing 32 putts which included three putting on three occasions as he fell off the pace in the year’s third Major.

A double bogey on the second hole set the tone for Lahiri’s difficult day. A birdie on four was the Indian’s only respite as he dropped three straight bogeys from the 10th hole before missing a short par attempt at the last.


Mickelson maintains lead at halfway point of The Open

American golfer Phil Mickelson is still in the lead at the midway point of the British Open, firing a two-under 69 on a rainy and windy day at Royal Troon Golf Club to leave him 10 strokes under par for the tournament.

"I really enjoy the challenge that this weather and these elements provide," the five-time major winner said after his round on Friday.
