Henrik Stenson takes control of The Open with incredible putt

Think Stenson wants to win his first major?

Henrik Stenson is dueling on Sunday with Phil Mickelson at The Open, with the two veterans sparring on the inward nine for the Claret Jug. They're both hitting some great shots, but not many have been greater than what Stenson did on the 15th green, when he nailed a 51-foot putt for birdie to go up two strokes.

Stenson walked his shot into the hole. It was as if he knew it was good the second it left the face of his putter.
