THE BIG WIN­NER

Golf World (UK) - - THE SPIN -

While I have noth­ing but ad­mi­ra­tion for the way Jor­dan Spi­eth per­formed at the Open, greater praise should go to his fi­nal-day play­ing part­ner, Matt Kuchar.

De­spite watch­ing his Open hopes slip from his grasp over those fi­nal five holes, Kuchar com­pleted his round with great dig­nity and grace. We can only spec­u­late on how much the in­ter­minable wait on the 13th hole af­fected him and we will never know the truth. To his credit, Mr Kuchar never grum­bled or griped and was pro­fes­sion­al­ism per­son­i­fied through­out a very try­ing fi­nal round. To me, he was the Open’s big win­ner. M. Bur­dett, email
