Jordan Spieth will be eager to win the Open Championship for the second time in his career when he tees off at the Old Course at St Andrews.
 
The American star won this tournament in 2017 as he shot four rounds in the sixties for 268 (–12), three strokes ahead of runner-up Matt Kuchar, for his third major title.
 
It was also the second major triumph in which he led wire-to-wire (2015 Masters) and it remains his last major tournament win.

Therefore, Spieth became just the second player in history after Jack Nicklaus to win three of the four men's golf majors before his 24th birthday.
 
Since then Texas-born golfer has won two tournaments on the PGA Tour namely the 2021 Valero Texas Open and 2022 RBC Heritage.
 
At the 2021 Open Championship, Spieth, who is a two-time Byron Nelson Award winner, shot a final-round 66, finishing runner-up on a score of −13, two shots behind Collin Morikawa.
 
Then in April this year, Spieth won his 13th PGA Tour title, when he achieved victory at the RBC Heritage where he was tied at −13 with Patrick Cantlay, whom he defeated with a par in the first playoff hole.
 
“I think the Open at St. Andrews is arguably the best golf tournament we play,” Spieth said on Golf Week last week ahead of the 2022 Open Championship. 
 
“I just think the history of it, playing in the town, the idea that it could be the easiest or the hardest venue that we play depending on the day.
 
"Maybe it’s just I remember watching certain ones growing up, and so the holes, the kind of scenic holes, starting and finishing.”
 
Harry Vardon is the most decorated golfer in the history of the Open Championship having won it a record six times.
