It was quite a duel in the final pairing of the third round in the Open Championships.

And, it's the Swede who has the lead after three rounds.

Henrik Stenson shot a three-under-par 68 Saturday to take a one shot lead over Phil Mickelson with a three round score of -12 201 at Royal Troon.

Mickelson faltered with three bogeys on the back nine and finished with a -1 70 and -11 for the Championships.

Although scores can fluctuate on any given day at Royal Troon, it looks like it could be a two man race on the final day.  Bill Haas is in third place, six shots of the lead.

It is the first time Stenson has led a major after three rounds.
