Henrik Stenson led the way for LIV Golfers at the 151st Open, with the 2016 Champion Golfer of the Year finishing top of the 16 LIV players in the field.

The Swede finished at three-under-par to place just outside of the top-10, ahead of his stand-in Majesticks GC teammate Laurie Canter. Englishman Canter was a stroke further back at two-under for what will comfortably be his best ever Major finish.

Stenson's T13 is his best Major finish in over four years, since his T9 at the 2019 US Open.

Of the 16 LIVers in the field, ten made the cut but it was only Stenson and Canter who finished under par. The 2010 Open champion Louis Oosthuizen posted even par to finish third out of the 16 players.

LIV players have made plenty of noise at the Majors this year, proving that they can still compete in four day events with a 36-hole cut.

At Augusta, 12 of the 18 made the cut and Koepka and Mickelson finished T2. A month later at the PGA Championship, 11 of the 16 LIV players made the weekend and LIV's very own Koepka won the Wanamaker Trophy for the third time.

At the US Open last month, 10 of the 15 made the cut, where Cameron Smith finished as the highest-placed LIV golfer in fourth place. The 151st Open was arguably their worst showing in the Majors this year, with no players featuring inside the top 10.
