Open Championship

East Lothian, Scotland

The 142nd Open Championship was held at Muirfield outside Edinburgh, Scotland, where the storied links, swept by heavy sea breezes, played firm and fast all four days. Putting together what he called “the best round of his career” in very tough conditions, Phil Mickelson shot a sparkling 5-under 66 on Sunday to win his fifth major title. He finished three strokes ahead of runner-up Henrik Stenson and four strokes clear of Ian Poulter, Adam Scott, and Lee Westwood on a day when the lead changed hands several times.
