Jordan Spieth won The Open at Royal Birkdale by three shots after an enthralling battle with Matt Kuchar.

Spieth, 23, blew a three-shot overnight lead by the turn and trailed Kuchar after dropping a shot on the 13th.

But he wrestled back the lead with a run of birdie, eagle, birdie, birdie to finish on 12 under and win his third major after the Masters and US Open.

The American is the second player after Jack Nicklaus to win three of golf's four majors before the age of 24.

The world number three is the youngest Open winner since 22-year-old Seve Ballesteros won the first of his three titles in 1979.

Spieth, who either led or tied for the lead after every round, carded a one-under-par 69, with fellow American Kuchar's 69 leaving him on nine under.

Spieth will have the opportunity to complete the career Grand Slam at the PGA Championship in August.

"This is absolutely a dream come true," said Spieth, who receives $1.8m (£1.4m) in prize money.
