If a player finishes 80th in the 2022 British Open he still picks up $30,950 which is more than the 25,000 English Pounds Jack Nicklaus got for winning in 1978, then again Dustin Johnson has supposedly received $US150 million to sign on to the rebel LIV Tour.

Cameron Smith has written his name into Australian sporting folklore with a spectacular comeback victory at the landmark 150th British Open at St Andrews.

With a remarkable five successive birdies to start the back nine, Smith chased down home hope Rory McIlroy to become the first Australian to claim the famous Claret Jug since Greg Norman at Royal St George's in 1993.

Showing nerves of steel, the 28-year-old closed with a record eight-under-par 64 on Sunday to capture his elusive maiden major championship after two near misses at the Masters.

He won by a shot from American Cameron Young, who eagled the last for a 65 to force Smith to hole a clutch two-foot birdie putt to deny the American a four-hole playoff.

McIlroy finished a further stroke back at 18-under following a final-round 70.

Smith's four-round total of 20 under equalled Henrik Stenson's 72-hole Open scoring record and bettered Tiger Woods' record tally at St Andrews in 2000 by a stroke.

Smith is Australia's first men's major winner since Jason Day at the 2015 PGA Championship at Whistling Straits.

His magical triumph came after the Queenslander started the final round four strokes behind Northern Ireland's McIlroy and Norway's Viktor Hovland.

In etching his name in the history books after winning golf's oldest and greatest championship, Smith also becomes the first player to complete The Players-British Open double since the legendary Jack Nicklaus in 1978.

He is Australia's fifth winner of the Open after Norman, who also reigned at Turnberry in 1986, Ian Baker Finch (1991), Kel Nagle (1960) and five-times champion Peter Thomson (1954, 1955, 1956, 1958 and 1965).

Nagle and Thomson are the only other Australians to have won the Open on the Old Course at the home of golf.

But not even those two greats completed victory in such grand style.

Smith's finishing 64 is the lowest final round from an Open champion since Norman at Sandwich in 1993.

Norman, though, was playing a par-70 course and Smith a par-72 championship layout.

After a luckless third round with the putter, when he surrendered a two-shot halfway lead, Smith promised a Sunday birdie blitz in a desperate bid to reel in McIlroy and Hovland.

He dragged the overnight deficit from four shots back to just one after steadily reaching the turn in two under for his round, then jagged three birdies in a row to open the front nine.

But, so stealthy was his back-nine attack, that it wasn't until Smith drained his fourth straight birdie on No.13 to snatch a share of the lead that McIlroy probably even realised he was being hunted down.

If there was any doubt, though, McIlroy would have known after Smith waved his magic wand once again to two-putt for a 25-metre birdie from off the green on the par-five 14th to seize the outright lead.

While McIlroy, like Smith on Saturday, couldn't buy a putt, the Australian produced a brilliant scrambling par save on the treacherous 17th Road Hole to remain in control.

Not even Young's sublime eagle at the last could then deny Smith, who calmly holed out under unbearable tension to break Australia's 29-year Open title drought.

When Collingwood won the 1990 Grand Final, I watched from the Hyatt, Coolum. 

 When they won in 2010, I was at Crown, Melbourne..

 When Souths won, in 2014, I watched from Crown Promenade, Melbourne.

 It seems it's lucky for me to be in a hotel when someone I want to win, wins.

See what I mean - 30 on the back 9 - classic. The only solution is to not even think of having a bet. If I do think of having a bet it can only end in one of two ways, both of them annoying and unpleasant.LOLCry

We should have a thread dedicated to the LIV "Tour" If it was not for the fact it is blood money and the head mouthpiece is Greg Norman I would be 100% behind it.

The PGA Tour has bought golf around the world near enough to it's knees, it has certainly ruined the Australian Summer of GOlf.

Totally disagree Djebel

Its now much, much easier to win on the Australian PGA tour. You only play against Australians & a few overseas competitors ranked in 10,000's

The fact that you play for a bucket of prawns & a green & yellow table cloth is more the issue LOL
