Make no mistake, the wheels had started to come off - but what a response from Jordan Spieth, who now has three Majors to his name.

The Open 2017: Jordan Spieth stumbles, then sparkles to victory at Royal Birkdale

He bogeyed 13 - in itself an incredible result given the penalty drop he suffered from the tee - before catching fire and leaving Kuchar stunned.

There was a 20-minute delay after Spieth's tee shot on the par-4th 13th sailed into heavy rough, before, under penalty, he dropped back to 260 yards.

Kuchar was well placed in the fairway and safely found the green to set up birdie, and just as it seemed me might be about to suffer a similar collapse to the one he suffered at the Masters in 2016, he turned the Championship back in his favour - and in quite some style.

After the dramas of 13, this his near-hole-in-one followed at the 14th.

He follows with a birdie at the 16th, rolling this one in as Kuchar watches on.

Another birdie at 17 followed, leaving the relatively easy task of playing 18 with a two-shot lead. He tapped in for a safe par for a spectacular win.

Matt Kuchar What’s In The Bag?

We take a look at the clubs inside…

Kuchar finished the day three shots back with a 69 and would have been a worthy champion, the 39-year-old American playing some magficiant golf of his own. He had drawn level with Spieth after four holes and had edged ahead for the first time on 13 before his compatriot surged clear.

Kuchar remains one of the game's most consistent performers without claiming one of the coveted prizes. For Spieth, he now has three golf's four Majors  - and you wouldn't bet against him completing the Grand Slam at the US PGA Championship next month.

Jordan Spieth, your 2017 Champion Golfer Of The Year. Here's hoping for more of the same drama at Carnoustie.
