Here are the key stats from the final round at Royal Troon:
• Stenson is the second player in history to shoot a final-round 63 in a major. Johnny Miller shot 63 in the final round of the 1973 U.S. Open at Oakmont to win.
• Stenson has seven top-five finishes in majors before this victory. He’s the first to have seven or more top-five finishes in majors before the first win since Phil Mickelson in 2004.
• At 40, Stenson is the second-oldest major champion from Europe. Only Darren Clarke was older when he won the 2011 Open at Sandwich.
• Stenson snaps the streak of six straight Open winners at Royal Troon from the U.S., the first non-American to win at Troon since Bobby Locke in 1950.
• Mickelson’s 17 under ties the second-lowest score to par in a major by a non-winner. Only Bob May’s 18 under at the 2000 PGA Championship was lower. He lost in a playoff to Tiger Woods. Mickelson’s 17 under would win or force a playoff in 141 of 145 Opens.
• This was Mickelson’s 11th-career runner-up finish in a major, the second most all time. Only Jack Nicklaus (19) has more.
