Jordan Spieth won the 146th Open Championship on Sunday at the Royal Birkdale.
On the verge of another meltdown in a major so wild off the tee that he played one shot from the driving range at Royal Birkdale and lost the lead for the first time all weekend, Spieth bounced back with a collection of clutch shots, delivering a rally that ranks among the best.
A near ace. A 50-foot eagle putt . A 30-foot birdie putt. Spieth played the final five holes in 5 under and closed with a 1-under 69 for a three-shot victory over Matt Kuchar. Jordan Spieth’s win at the British Open makes him one of only two golfers to win three of the four major championships before the age of 24. The only other is Jack Nicklaus, who holds the all-time record with 18 major titles. Spieth will try for his fourth next month at the PGA Championship.
