American young guns Jordan Spieth and Rickie Fowler arrived at St. Andrews Monday with wins under their belt and British Open glory in their sights.In the absence through injury of world No. 1 and defending champion Rory McIlroy, Spieth at 21 and Fowler at 26 represent the new generation of golfers taking over from the likes of Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Ernie Els.Spieth, who has already won the Masters and the U.S. Open this year, was criticized for not coming to Scotland earlier given his lack of experience of playing links golf. He has played just the one round at St. Andrews four years ago ahead of a Walker Cup tie in Aberdeen.Woods won the Open at St. Andrews in 2000 by eight strokes and in 2005 by five strokes, while South African Oosthuizen triumphed by seven strokes the last time it was held at the Old Course in 2010 .
