Jordan Spieth was one of the leaders on Day 1.
He was one of the leaders on Day 2.
He was one of the leaders on Day 3.
And he was the Champion, on Day 4.
How it all came about, the analysis and news and photos of a history making Championship for Jordan, can be found via our direct link to the official website of The Open.
It was, as last year, a fight to the finish. Spieth stumbled at the start, picking up two bogeys on the first three holes and eventually falling behind playing partner Matt Kuchar, until he found his game and then his destiny, by going five under par for the last five holes and finishing the tournament twelve under par to Kuchar’s very game but not-quite-enough 9 under par. It was a great tournament, full of drama, record setting performances, and a final day that was yet another classic at a tournament that seems to insist on such things.
Spieth is now the second person to win three majors before his 24th birthday; the other is a guy named Jack Nicklaus, who went on to win 18 majors. The memory of The Masters loss in 2016 now gone, expect Spieth to accelerate his game even more. He is that good.
Take advantage of the great reporting that’s available on The Open website (by using our direct link), in particular the hole-by-hole coverage of the final round of Jordan Spieth and Matt Kuchar. Certainly, the 146th edition of The Open was another classic.
