Henrik Stenson won the 2016 Open at Royal Troon

Defending Open champion Henrik Stenson’s rental home was burgled as he played his first round at Royal Birkdale on Thursday.

The Swede said valuable personal items and all of his clothing were taken, but added that the Claret Jug, awarded to the winner of The Open, had already been returned to the R&A on Monday.

“I am extremely grateful my family were not in the house,” said Stenson, 41.

“I am going to try not to let this spoil the week in any way.”

An R&A spokesperson said: “We were very sorry to hear about the burglary and have offered any assistance we can provide to Henrik and his family.”

Stenson teed off at 09:47 BST on Thursday and finished on one under par.

He was a late starter as Friday’s second round got under way.
