The Open Championship turned into a summer hike across the English countryside on Sunday afternoon when Jordan Spieth sent his tee shot at the 13th hole miles right of the fairway.

The three shot lead Spieth came into the day with evaporated by the fourth hole after a bogey-par-bogey-bogey start.

Spieth nearly aced the par-3 14th, then made eagle on the par-5 15th and further birdies on 16 and 17 to leave his playing partner and Ryder Cup teammate shell- shocked after a wild three-shot swing.

Spieth, who won The Open by a three-stroke margin ahead of Matt Kuchar in memorable fashion on Sunday, appeared to have dented his chances when he hit an errant drive off the 13th tee which caused him to take a drop from an unplayable lie. Tiger Woods was 24 when he won his third different major.

Police chief in USA city quits after fatal shooting
Assistant Police Chief Medaria Arradondo says the policy which governs camera use is under review. But investigators located and interviewed a witness they had been seeking, the BCA said.

Jordan Spieth is the British Open champion.

In a relief, Spieth birdied the fifth hole.

On hole six, a Kuchar bogey extended Spieth's lead to two strokes and Kuchar missed a birdie putt on seven to close the gap on Spieth.

China's Li Haotong is waiting in third place, two shots off the leading pair, after posting a fine 63 which featured birdies on each of the last four holes. (On the NBC telecast, Johnny Miller said he thought that this was Spieth's best bet; Spieth didn't think so, and he now has more major wins than Miller).

The Open, Brendan Grace Shoots A Historic 62 In Round 3
Grace's response, he said, was, "What are you talking about?" "My whole thing on the 18th was trying just not to make bogey". Miller dinged the accomplishment in what was more than a backhanded compliment, pejoratively referring to the easier U.S.

On the 13th, a horrendous tee shot from Spieth put him in trouble, on the back side of a dune. By the slenderest of margins, he became the second player to win three legs of golf's Grand Slam before turning 24, joining the 18-time major victor Jack Nicklaus.

He walked up between the grandstands lining the 18th to a huge ovation and made a safe par to join illustrious names such as Arnold Palmer, Lee Trevino, Peter Thomson and Tom Watson who have won the Open at Royal Birkdale.

Earlier in the tournament, South African Branden Grace broke the record for lowest score ever in a men's major championship - a 62.

"This is a dream come true for me, absolutely a dream come true", Spieth said afterward.
