Henrik Stenson’s performance will go down as one of the greatest final rounds in Open Championship history. His performance on the back nine – a stretch where everyone struggled – was unreal, nobody in the world could have responded to four birdies in the last five holes.
To call it a two horse race would ignore the stable full of horses that never turned up. The rest of the field were left chomping on gorse as Phil and Henrik played a different game. Rarely do you see a leaderboard with so much air separating the field.
-6: J.B. Holmes

The final day was a masterclass, but what about the rest of the field? What happened to leave so many of the world’s best golfers trailing in the wake of two Swedes? – apparently Phil’s paternal grandfather hails from Viking country.
