Swedish golfer Henrik Stenson captured his first major by edging American Phil Mickelson, shooting a record-breaking 264 (lowest 72-hole score in major history) to win the British Open, one of golf's four top tournaments
in the world.
While other golfers were busy acting like children by breaking their own clubs (looking at you Thomas Pieters
and Rory McIlroy
), Stenson and Mickelson looked like men among boys as they engaged in a historic duel that saw both golfers hit 63-shot rounds (tied for lowest score in a single major championship round). However, Stenson pulled away during the final round on Sunday, finishing 8-under-par (tied major record) to beat Mickelson by three strokes on the tournament (-20 to -17). To put that into perspective, third-place winner J.B. Holmes finished 6-under-par. Like we said, men among boys.
Stenson may have turned in an all-time performance, but the tournament's real winner
was Andrew "Beef" Johnston. Beef, who looks like he'd be better at World of Warcraft
than golf (pictured above, guess who!), smoked golf tees like cigarettes, snacked while playing, and high-fived everyone
, all while finishing in a respectable eighth-place. He capped off his performance by saying, "I'll definitely be having a beer tonight." Andrew "Beef" Johnston; number eight on the charts, number one in our hearts.
