2010 British Open Golf Tournament Results

The 2010 British Open was 139th time the tournament was played.

Winner: Louis Oosthuizen, 272

Where it was played: The Old Course at St. Andrews, Scotland

Tournament dates: July 15-18, 2010

Leader after first round: Rory McIlroy, 63

Leader after second round: Louis Oosthuizen, 132

Leader after third round: Louis Oosthuizen, 201

Notable Notes: Louis Oosthuizen, who was little-heralded at the time, took the lead after 36 holes and never let it go. Oosthuizen's lead after Round 2 was five strokes; it was four after the third round; and he won by seven.

Rory McIlroy tied the tournament's 18-hole scoring record with a 63 in the first round, but in very high winds on Day 2 McIlroy soared to an 80. He came back to finish tied for third.
