Jordan Spieth proved to be the ultimate competitor
in a topsy turvy final round at Royal Birkdale.
Jordan found real trouble at thirteen,
but managed to salvage a bogey five.
Salvaging this bogey proved pivotal
as he went on a birdie, eagle, birdie, birdie, blitz on the next four holes.
Matt Kuchar stayed with him all the way.
On seventeen Matt got within one shot,
but Jordan bolted the door with a birdie on the same hole.

Brilliant play from Spain’s Sergio Garcia saw off the immense challenge of England’s Justin Rose on the first play-off hole of the 2017 US Masters.
Both players finished on nine under par, but a brilliant second shot from Garcia on the first extra hole, put paid to Rose’s dream of donning the famous Masters Green Jacket.
On the day when Seve Ballesteros would have celebrated his sixtieth birthday, Sergio became the third Spanish winner of the US Masters.
This was a well-deserved victory. Sergio produced his best Golf under the most immense pressure. This was the mark of a true champion.
We look forward to another great battle between Rose and Garcia when they clash again in the Bristish Open at Royal Birkdale later in the year.

British Open Championship 2016.
Henrik Stenson wins the Tussle at Troon to win first Major.
Sweden’s Henrik Stenson showed incredible bounce-back ability to become the Champion Golfer of the Year at Troon.
Starting with a bogey on the first, Stenson birdied the second and what followed can only be described as one of the greatest tussles in Open Championship history.
Stenson and Mickelson pushed each other to new heights and Stenson carded the lowest fourth round score in Open Championship History.
Henrik finished twenty under par and Phil was three behind on seventeen under. Only the ‘Duel in the Sun’ at Turnberry between Nicklaus and Watson could rival this incredible drama.
Rory Mcilroy was the best placed British player on four under, but his putting was woeful. Gary Player believes there is too much emphasis on long-hitting in today’s game. He stated the poorest drivers in Golf History were Seve Ballesteros and Tiger Woods but their powers of recovery won them numerous majors. Player stated that too many players are being coached by people who couldn’t break 80.
Phil Mickelson, the pen pushing Californian, stormed into the lead with a wonderful 8 under par 63.
Britain’s Justin Rose was well in contention at 3 under.

Justin Rose fell apart in the tricky conditions and just made the cut for the weekend.

Day 3 at the British Open.
Henrik Stenson goes into Sunday’s final round one shot clear of Phil Mickelson.
Stenson finished on 12 under par with Mickelson one shot behind on 11 under.
England’s Andrew Johnston was 5 under at the end of his third round.
Andrew is the only realistic chance of securing a British victory.
Mickelson’s round came unstuck on the back nine with uncharacteristic poor putting. Only a superb bunker shot on 18 stopped him dropping even further behind.
Sky pundit Colin Montgomerie props up the field on 12 over. Colin failed to turn up for his post match news conference, perhaps he was feeling the pressure from propping up the rest of the field.
A snapper annoyed Phil Mickelson on 18, Phil’s response will not be recorded here.
Phil Mickelson gave his Golf Ball to a delighted young fan, that’s why the fans love Phil, he has such great empathy with the galleries.
Who will be holding the Claret Jug on Sunday evening?

No third Major in a row for Jordan.
Britain’s Danny Willett and Justin Rose finished 11 under.

Jordan Spieth has become the youngest Golfer to win two consecutive Majors.
In a quite brilliant final day at the US Open, Spieth finished five under par.
Dustin Johnson three-putted the last hole failing to take the event into a play-off.
A 29 stroke back nine from South Africa’s Louis Oosthuizen just failed to catch Spieth.
Rory Mcilroy’s birdie blitz on the front nine put him in contention for a short while, but his putting cooled and his challenge fizzled out.
