Jordan Spieth has revealed how he celebrated his Open triumph


Just a few weeks ago, Jordan Spieth managed to produce a remarkable stretch of holes to dramatically win his first Open title.

Starting the final round with a three-shot lead over fellow American Matt Kuchar, the majority of the golfing world expected Spieth to cruise to victory and capture his third major triumph.

But it did not quite go to the script for the 24-year-old, who dropped three shots in his first four holes of his final round to fall back into a tie with Kuchar.

And things went from bad to worse for Spieth, who blocked his tee-shot on the 13th way right and was forced to take a penalty drop in the practice range.

But Spieth would go on to salvage a bogey after that disastrous drive, before following that blemish with birdie-eagle-birdie-birdie over the next four holes to snatch victory away from his countryman.

It was a remarkable victory for the world number two, who would undoubtedly have been relieved that he was able to overcome such adversity to win his maiden Open title.

And after a stressful but ultimately successful week at Royal Birkdale, the American has revealed he celebrated his victory by embarking on a fishing holiday to the mountains of Montana, accompanied by his brother and his father.

Starting this week at the World Golf Championship at Firestone Country club, Spieth will now embark on a busy schedule which sees him compete in seven events in nine weeks.

146th Open Championship - Final Round

But the break seems to have served its purpose for Spieth, who has stated that the time off has recharged his batteries as he prepares for a hectic few months to end the season.

The three-time major winner said: "(It's) Nice to be back here at Firestone and feeling refreshed," as per the Daily Mail.

"That's a pretty heavy stretch to finish the year but I had a few weeks off before the Open and now another week. I feel refreshed and typically that's not the case after a major like that."

Spieth also revealed that prior to his fishing trip, he sat down with his caddie Michael Greller as he reflected on what was a roller-coaster final round at the British Open.


The American continued: "It was fun to be able to relive it and do it with Mikey... It was a lot more exciting than it needed to be. That 13-through-16 stretch was very memorable (and) 17 was very big, too."

Spieth will now be aiming to win his 15th professional victory and his third in a row; following on from his triumphs at the Travelers Championship in June and the British Open in July.

Interestingly, despite winning 14 times and having already bagged three major titles at the age of 24, Spieth has never captured a World Golf Championship title.

Having been in scintillating form in recent weeks, the American will now be hoping to add a WGC to his impressive list of his achievements when he tees it up in Ohio at the Bridgestone Invitational this week.
