Highlights Henrik Stenson of Sweden won his first major golf championship today at the Open (aka the British Open).

They scored -20 and -17 under par, respectively, while the third place player finished at -6 under par. In golf, the goal is to complete the game with as few strokes as possible and the score is the difference between the number of strokes and the par score.
