For Louis Oosthuizen it was his first-ever majors win, great 7-shots clear at the finish.
The other great thing about the British Open is the prize money this year. The British Open Championship 2010 prize money was risen by£600,000 this time to take the grand amount to £4.8 million.
Stuart Cink the defending champion of the British Open last year won £750,000. This times winner Louis Oosthuizen will take home £850,000 in total.
The reason of the raise on the prize money is due to the weak pound against the US dollar as well as the Euro.
