Royal Troon Golf Club, Troon, Scotland

On Henrik Stenson and Phil Mickelson separating themselves from the rest of the field
Brandel Chamblee – “If the Duel in the Sun is equal to the movie ‘The Godfather,’ then this back-and-forth [today] is The Godfather II. Because it was better than anyone could have imagined. Maybe as good as the original, maybe better.”
Frank Nobilo – “The gap between second and third place allowed two players to just play their own games. Machine-like Stenson and magician-like Mickelson… There was always going to be a loser, but I doubt that Stenson or Mickelson have either played better where they’ve finished respectively and not won the tournament.”
David Duval – “The golf was beyond spectacular and it’s something we probably won’t see for a long time again.”

On Stenson
Chamblee – “It’s very tempting in this game to think ‘what would you get if you put the ball striking of Ben Hogan with the putting of Bobby Locke?’ Well I think we all know now.”
Chamblee – “It’s not often that we get to witness history. 438 majors have been played since the first one not far from here in 1860. Lowest score ever shot. We watched it today.”
