Henrik Stenson oudueled Phil Mickelson with a record-tying 63 on Sunday at Royal Troon and it didn't take him long to get his hands on the claret jug, the first major championship trophy for the Swede.

Watch Stenson's victory speech at the trophy ceremony above, and relive the instant classic in the video below, where Stenson and Mickelson eseentially turned The Open into a match play event, finishing 11 shots clear of third place.

Stenson also stopped to chat with Mike Tirico, talking about the moment that "hadn't even sunk in yet."
