There already have been two lead changes in the first three holes of the British Open on Sunday in Scotland at Royal Troon.

Henrik Stenson began the final round Sunday with a one-shot lead, but gave it up with three-putt bogey at No. 1. Phil Mickelson spun his approach shot about two feet from the flag and tapped in for birdie and a one-stroke lead.

Stenson tied it up with a birdie of his own at the second hole, rolling in a 15-foot putt. Mickelson made a brilliant up-and-down after missing the green with his approach, nearly holing out a chip over a bunker.

Then, at No. 3, Stenson made an 18-foot birdie putt to push his score to 13 under. He reclaimed the lead when Mickelson missed a 6-foot birdie try.

Conditions have improved for the afternoon starters at Royal Troon, with the sun breaking through the clouds and the winds dying down a bit.

It looks like there could be some low scores before the day is done. Jordan Spieth and Lee Westwood have already posted 3-under 68s, and five other players have turned in scores below par.
