“I feel like I can breathe,” said the Australian. “These last four or five holes aren’t easy around here, especially with the wind up off the left. Yeah, just stuck to what I was doing. Just really proud of how I kind of knuckled down today and managed to get it done.

“To win an Open Championship in itself is probably going to be a golfer’s highlight in their career. To do it around St Andrews, I think is just unbelievable.”

“I think I was really frustrated yesterday with how the round went. I just really put it down to links golf. I think you really have those days on these courses where you get a bit of a weird bounce here and there and puts you in a bad spot.

“I don’t think I hit the ball any differently all four days, to be honest. I felt like I kept hitting quality golf shots and kept giving myself looks at birdie, even from a distance, which is sometimes what you have to do around here.

“The only difference today, was the putts were dropping. I spent a little bit of time on the green yesterday night, last night, and just really wanted to see a few putts go in. It turned out it was a pretty good thing to do.”

First-round leader Cameron Young of the USA carded a 65 to finish second at 19-under in his first start in the Open.

Northern Ireland’s Rory McIlroy, who held a share of the lead overnight, struggled with his putting and closed with a 70 to finish third at 18-under.

Overnight co-leader Viktor Hovland closed with a 74 and finished in a tie for fourth place at 14-under alongside England’s Tommy Fleetwood who closed with a 67.
