Ben Curtis wins 132nd Open Championship

American rookie Ben Curtis won the 132nd Open Championship after a rollercoaster final round at Royal St George's. Curtis, competing in his first-ever major, won by one stroke after shooting a 69 to end on one-under-par.

His nearest challenger, Thomas Bjorn, self-destructed on the closing holes having held the lead for much of the final round.

His double bogey at the 16th, where he needed three attempts to get out of a greenside bunker, effectively handed the Claret Jug to Curtis.
