Golf's greatest names hailed Jordan Spieth's dramatic triumph at the British Open at Royal Birkdale Sunday as the new champion savored his victory by swigging from the Claret Jug trophy.Few would argue with that after Spieth played the final five holes in five under par to see off the challenge of runner-up Matt Kuchar and secure his third major to set alongside his 2015 Masters and U.S. Open triumphs.The next few weeks will be dominated by talk of whether golf's brightest young star can emulate his 2015 feat of triumphing at successive majors by winning next month's U.S. PGA at Quail Hollow.If he does, Spieth will join golf's Famous Five – Gene Sarazen and Ben Hogan are the other winners of each major – at a younger age than the rest, having already become the youngest American to win the British Open.
