The Open Championship is guaranteed to deliver plenty of drama, and we certainly weren’t disappointed yesterday, as Jordan Spieth secured his highly anticipated win in the most unlikely of fashions.
His early meltdown over the opening holes at Royal Birkdale was reminiscent of his infamous collapse at Augusta last year, and following an awful drive on thirteen, it appeared that history was again repeating itself.
Then came one of most extraordinary and inspired runs in Open history, as he made an improbable bogey from the driving range, before carding three birdies and an eagle over the closing stretch to leave playing partner Matt Kucher trailing in his wake, and capture his first Open Championship victory.
With victory, comparisons with the golfing gods again became inevitable. Still just twenty-three, Spieth has become the second-youngest player in the modern era to secure three major titles, and will head to Quail Hollow next month with the prospect of a grand slam and certain greatness ahead of him.

Few will resent the Spieth’s victory. The youngster has proved time and time again that he is a class act, both on and off the course, and won over the Southport crowds with his humble and mature approach to the game long before he began his extraordinary sprint to the finish line on Sunday.
Safe to say @JordanSpieth enjoyed last night!

Meanwhile Royal Birkdale again proved its worth as one of the finest Open Championship venues, although it’s a shame that the stunning links and the showcase it produced was not broadcast for everyone to see on the BBC.
