First delegation of athletes enter Rio Olympics Village, Australia stays out

Henrik Stenson outduels Mickelson, shatters British Open record in dramatic win

Stenson's total score of 20-under on 264 shots is not only an Open scoring record, but it's the lowest 72-hole total score ever shot in major championship history.
