Mo Martin Wins Ricoh British Open

In one of the most unlikely results in British Open History, Mo Martin has won the 2014 Ricoh British Open!

2014 British Open winner Mo Martin

Martin eagled the 18th hole to tie for the lead, and then had to wait over an hour for the other contenders to complete their rounds.

Inbee Park, Shanshan Feng and Suzann Pettersen all failed to take advantage of the fact that 3 of the last 4 holes were par fives, and all crumbled under the pressure.

The win was the first on the LPGA tour for the 31 year old Martin. U.S. players have now won 11 of the 17 tournaments that have been played this year, and all 3 major championships.



  1. Suzann birdied the last two (and nearly the 16th) - I wouldn't call that crumbling.

  2. She did, but she crumbled a bit earlier. After tying for the lead she bogeyed 2 holes and then doubled 13. Her late birdies was a case of too little too late.
