Here’s proof that the power of the SEC is everywhere. Even across the pond.
What you probably know is that Swedish golfer Henrik Stenson outdueled Phil Mickelson on Sunday to win the 145th Open Championship at Troon, carding a final-round 63 to Mickelson’s 65 and beating him by three shots.
What you may not know about Stenson is that his wife, Emma Lofgren, is a former member of the South Carolina women’s golf team. The two were married in 2006 and have three children.
So maybe the Claret Jug will be coming to Columbia, S.C., soon. You never know.
