Relive how Jordan Spieth claimed a dramatic victory at The Open at Royal Birkdale.

The Southport-based course tweeted on Wednesday that it received a "special delivery to the club", showing the arrival of the three-iron identical to the one Spieth used to produce one of the most miraculous recoveries in the tournament's history.

Spieth had been tied at the top of the leaderboard with six holes left of the final round, only to hit a drive at the par-four 13th way right of the fairway and in a unplayable spot behind a sand dune.

It took more than 20 minutes of deliberation with rules officials for Spieth to take his drop and play his third from the practice area, where Spieth incredibly laced his 3-iron from a guessed yardage over the dunes and just short of the green.
