TROON, Scotland -- Henrik Stenson is the champion golfer of the year, thanks to a final round for the ages.He kept hitting the best shots of his life, one after another, and he needed each one to stay ahead of Phil Mickelson in a British Open duel that ranked among the best in major championship history.Stenson made 10 birdies, including a 50-foot putt across the 15th green that had him pumping his fist in a rare show of emotion Sunday.The final stroke in this masterpiece was a 20-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole that curled into the cup on the final turn. It gave him an 8-under 63, tying Johnny Miller at Oakmont for the greatest closing round by a major champion, and Stenson didnt even realize it until he sat down to sign his card.Records didnt matter. This was about winning his first major -- the first by a Swedish man.Thr 46-year-old Mickelson was a runner-up for the 11th time in a major, but never like this. He cant look back at a mistake because he really didnt make any. He opened with a 63, closed with a career-best 65, shot the second-best score in Open history and was 11 shots better than everyone in the field.Except one.He got beat by arguably the best final round in 156 years of major championships.Miller also made 10 birdies in his final round of the 1973 U.S. Open, and then waited to see if anyone could catch him. Stenson started the final round with a one-shot lead over Mickelson, and knew it would be a two-man race from the opening hole when Mickelson nearly holed out from the fairway.The 40-year-old Stenson answered great shot with one of his own, finally pulling away with birdies on the 14th and 15th holes, and then a third in a row after Mickelson drilled a 3-wood onto the green at the par-5 16th and came within a fraction of an inch of making an eagle.The last birdie was for the record book.Stenson finished at 264, breaking by one shot the 72-hole scoring record in the majors that David Toms set in the 2001 PGA Championship at Atlanta Athletic Club. His 20-under par matched Jason Days record for lowest under par at last years PGA Championship.MARATHON CLASSICSYLVANIA, Ohio -- Lydia Ko outlasted Ariya Jutanugarn and Mirim Lee to win the Marathon Classic for her fourth LPGA Tour victory of the season.The top-ranked Ko made a 10-foot birdie putt on the fourth extra hole after Jutanugarn and Lee ran into trouble.
