Stenson Wins British Golf
SUTTON COLDFIELD, England (AP) _ Henrik Stenson of Sweden won his first European title Sunday, capturing the Benson and Hedges International by three strokes.
He shot a 2-under-par 70 Sunday to finish at 13-under 275. He became the sixth first-time winner on the European Tour this year, earning $235,000 for the title.
Paul McGinley of Ireland (70) and Angel Cabrera of Argentina (69) shared second place at 278.
McGinley, who shared the first-day lead with Stenson, birdied the last two holes. Olle Karlsson of Sweden was another three shots behind at 281 after a 73.
Stenson recovered after a bogey at No. 9. On the next hole, he drilled an iron over the lake and up the slope beside the green. He then chipped in for an eagle.
