Jordan Spieth won the British Open at Royal Birkdale on Sunday by three shots from fellow American Matt Kuchar after a dramatic final round.

Spieth, 23, shot a 69 to finish on 12 under par, with Kuchar second at nine-under. He is the first man to post four rounds in the 60s in an Open at Birkdale.

It is Spieth's third major title after he won the Masters and US Open in 2015.

"This is a dream come true for me. It feels good to have this in my hands," a beaming Spieth said after receiving the Claret Jug trophy on the 18th green.

"It could have gone to either one of us but I got the good breaks," admitted Spieth, who celebrates his 24th birthday next Thursday and is the youngest Open champion since 1979.
