Henrik Stenson won his first Major in scintillating style as he claimed a three-shot victory over Phil Mickelson at the Open Championship, which saw him overtake Rory McIlroy in second place in the Race to Dubai rankings.

In becoming the the first male player from Sweden to win a Major, Stenson claimed a staggering 1,363,834 Race to Dubai points to take his season total to 2,865,560 points from 10 events, moving to within 300,000 points of leader and Masters Tournament champion Danny Willett, who has played 15 tournaments.

Northern Ireland’s McIlroy, Spain’s Sergio Garcia and England’s Tyrrell Hatton finished tied-fifth on four under as they each claimed 273,541, with Garcia and Hatton both breaking into the Race to Dubai top 10 as a result.

Stenson did the clean sweep in 2013 when he clinched both the DP World Tour Championship and the Race to Dubai and he then successfully defended the tournament title the following year.
