The SportsXchange

Final round coverage of the British Open scored a 3.6 overnight Nielsen rating on Sunday, according to Sports Business Daily.

Phil Mickelson won the event by three shots. It was the highest-rated final round since it moved to ESPN in 2010.

The 3.6 rating came in the 8 a.m.-1:30 p.m. ET slot. It rated 10 percent higher than last year's Ernie Els victory that scored a 3.3.

In 2009, the last year the Open was on ABC, it received a 3.9 overnight.

Saturday's third-round coverage drew a 3.1 overnight, just better than last year's 3.0.
