2015 Open Championship
The 2015 Open Championship was the 144th edition of the tournament and Jordan Spieth headed to St Andrews in Scotland with the chance of winning three majors in a row. Spieth's chances were boosted by the withdrawal of Rory McIlroy pre-tournament but it was Zach Johnson who eventually emerged victorious in the first Open to finish on a Monday since 1988.
Dustin Johnson was again quick out of the blocks in a major as he took the lead with a 7-under-par 65, although Zach Johnson and Jason Day were part of a group who were just a shot further back, with Spieth two shots off the lead.
The players had to deal with some horrible weather conditions early on as heavy rain caused localised flooding and the second round had to be concluded on the Saturday, with Johnson still out in front, one shot clear.
The horrendous weather ensured that the third round didn't take place until the Sunday and it was a thriller as Dustin Johnson fell from sight with a disappointing performance, with Jason Day, Paul Dunne and Louis Oosthuizen sharing the lead going into the final day.
Oosthuizen managed to maintain his push for glory as he finished the fourth day in a share of the lead with Zach Johnson and Marc Leishman. It was Johnson who eventually took glory in a play-off and the American claimed his second major after winning the 2007 US Masters.
