Spieth wins British OpenJordan Spieth is the British Open champion, just like expected. Spieth played the final five holes in 5 under and closed with a 1-under 69 for a three-shot victory over Matt Kuchar, giving him the third leg of the career Grand Slam and a chance to be the youngest to win them all next month at the PGA Championship.Just 15 months ago, Spieth lost a five-shot lead on the back nine at the Masters, coming undone with a quadruple-bogey 7 on the 12th hole.Kuchar was 15 feet away for birdie, waiting – and waiting – on the green.Spieth appeared to be headed for a double bogey at best.Kuchar missed his birdie, but had the lead for the first time.Spieth had momentum from his bogey, and his 6-iron landed in front of the flag and missed going in by inches. Kuchar made birdie from the bunker on the 15th to stay one behind, but he had no answer when Spieth poured in a 30-foot birdie at the 16th. And after Kuchar rolled in a 20-foot birdie on the 17th to stay in the game, Spieth buried a 7-foot birdie on top of him to keep that two-shot lead going to the 18th.
