Official World Golf Ranking - Week 29/16

Henrik Stenson has won his first Major Championship in the 145th Open at Royal Troon by beating Phil Mickelson.
He started his round with a one-shot advantage over Mickelson but they were tied when they reached the last five holes. Stenson moved ahead with a birdie on 14th and increased his lead thanks to a remarkable 50-foot effort on the next hole. He then birdied the 18th to end his round at 20-under 63 to beat Mickelson by three shots. The best previous score in the Open was Tiger Woods' 19-under in 2000. J.B. Holmes finished in third at -6, Steve Stricker in fourth at -5 and Sergio Garcia, Tyrell Hatton and Rory McIlroy in fifth at -4.
Stenson becomes the first Swedish Major champion with the lowest total and lowest final round by a winner in Open history. His 63 for the final round (also scored by Mickelson on Thursday) equal the lowest round in Major history and his aggregate score of 264 is the lowest ever in a Major Championship.
He equals Robert Karlsson's record with 11 European Tour wins (the most by a Swede). His first Major win and 11th European Tour International Schedule victory came in his 322nd European Tour event and his 42nd Major appearance. This was his 12th Open Championship appearance, but his first at Royal Troon, where his previous best finish was second in 2013 and tied for third in 2010 and 2008. It was his second European Tour victory for the 2016 season after the BMW International Open.
At 40 years and 103 days he becomes the oldest first-time Major Champion since Darren Clarke in 2011 aged 42 years and 337 days. He is also the oldest player to win since Phil Mickelson in 2013 at 43 years and 35 days. He is the fourth player aged 40 or over to win the Open since 2011 following Dareen Clarke in 2011 at 42, Ernie Els in 2012 at 42 and Phil Mickeson in 2013 at 43.
Stenson moves up one sport in the World Ranking into fifth, Mickelson moves into 13 from 19, Holmes moves into 16 from 24, Stricker climbs from 167 into 86, Garcia moves up 2 spots into 10, Hatton is up into 55 from 68 and McIlroy stays in fourth.
