Jordan Spieth Donates Famous Open 3-Iron to Royal Birkdale
Jordan Spieth’s dramatic Open Championship victory in July will live long in the memory, and it has been permanently immortalised at Royal Birkdale after the young American donated his Titleist 718 T-MB 3-Iron that helped to carry the Texan to success over Matt Kuchar and secure the Claret Jug.
Having been imperious over three days, Spieth was struggling on Sunday, and ultimately relented a three-stroke lead going into the back-nine. Disaster looked to have struck on the 13th, when the former Masters and U.S. Open champion drove into an unplayable lie. Following a lengthy discourse, his ball was dropped in the practice area at Birkdale, from where he somehow managed to escape with a bogey after advancing the ball short of the green with that trusty 3-iron.

From there, Spieth produced an astonishing barrage that stunned Kuchar, making three birdies and an eagle over the next four holes that ultimately saw him claim a three-stroke victory. It was a championship for the ages and will be long regarded as being one of the greatest finishes in Open history.
