Open Winner Stenson Has Palmetto Tie

Henrik Stenson’s first major championship Sunday at the British Open included a big hug from his wife, Emma, at the 18th green after he sank a birdie putt that give him a major tournament record of 20 under par.

Emma is the former Emma Lofgren, who played golf collegiately at USC from 1996 to 2000.

The State newspaper reports that Stenson would often play practice rounds with USC’s men’s team when he visited her in Columbia.
