Jordan Spieth was crowned winner of the 2017 British Open, ending the tournament on 12 under at Royal Birkdale Golf Club in Southport, England, on Sunday.
A nervous last day saw Spieth card one-under 69 during a dramatic final round on Merseyside.
The winner appeared to have blown his chances on No. 13 as he sliced the ball over the crowd, forcing a drop and a penalty, but the American stormed back over the final holes with three birdies and an eagle.
Matt Kuchar placed second after finishing his final day on nine under for the tournament.
According to Izzy Horsefield of the Daily Express, the new champion claimed a winner's cheque of $1.845 million, with the amount paid in U.S. dollars due to a weak British pound at the $10.25 million competition.
Rory McIlroy will be pleased with the recovery of his form after a disappointing buildup to the championship, ending his tournament on five under.
Here is the final leaderboard:
Spieth's early form collapsed on Sunday after three days of sumptuous consistency on Merseyside, but the golfer produced one of the greatest recoveries of all time to snatch the Claret Jug.
The 23-year-old posted bogeys on three of the opening four holes, and playing partner Kuchar remained calm as he watched the mistakes with interest.
A birdie on No. 5 calmed the jitters for Spieth, but further drama was to follow as the superstar's challenge stumbled.
No. 13 was almost Spieth's undoing, slicing his tee shot 127 yards wide of the fairway, forcing the American to hold his head in his hands.
Spieth was made to take a one-shot penalty and a drop, but his recovery guaranteed he suffered just a bogey when it could have been so much worse.
The American went on the charge in his final holes, posting three birdies and an eagle as he shattered Kuchar's chances.
Kuchar ended with a fourth-round effort of one-under 69, but it wasn't good enough as Spieth produced one of the greatest endings of any major championship in history.
Spieth was certainly the best golfer over the four days in England, but his temperament and powers of recovery were at new levels.
Kuchar came so close to sneaking over the line as the winner, but his playing partner was in a class of his own at the end of the day.
Spieth will have ignited a new set of fans in England for his brand of golf, and he is now the most exciting golfer on the planet.
