Golfing great [FORENAME] [SURNAME] is the new Open champion after [he] holed a 50-foot putt on the final green to complete a remarkable four days of competition at St Andrews. [age]-year-old [SURNAME] held off the challenge of American favourite Tiger Woods to record a one-shot win that has already gone down in the history books as one of the greatest golfing performances of all time.
[SURNAME] looked like finishing second when [he] trailed Woods by a shot on the 17th tee, but successive birdies brought about an incredible turnaround in the final two holes. [SURNAME] showed great skill in each of [his] four rounds but, like all true stars, [he] saved [his] best for when it mattered the most. The hugely ambitious [SURNAME] showed amazing self belief. [FORENAME] started to play golf at every chance [he] got. Morning and night [he] would be on the golf course. I just knew that I could win a major competition if I could get more practice [he] said.
That helped [SURNAME] make a good start in the first three rounds at St Andrews but, going into the final day [he] still trailed Woods by one shot. That was clawed back when [SURNAME] played a fantastic 220-yard approach shot to the par-four second that actually hit the flag before dropping at the edge of the hole.
Smoothly, [SURNAME] calmly knocked in the putt to take a share of the lead. [FORENAME] stayed at the front for the rest of a nerve-jangling final round, but slipped behind when Woods birdied the 16th in fine style. Picking out [his] favourite club on the tee of the par-four 17th, the [age]-year-old hit a wonderful tee shot that dropped just two feet away from the hole. After waving to the crowd on [his] way to the green, [he] rolled in the putt to go back into a share of the lead. Suddenly, it was all about who would hold their nerve the best. Woods could only score a par four on the last but, after two good approach shots; [SURNAME] was left with a huge putt to win the Claret Jug.
The tension was unbelievable as [SURNAME] prepared for the shot that could win [him] the open. The crowd fell silent as [SURNAME] drew back [his] putter and stroked the ball towards the hole. It seemed to take an age to get there but, with all of [his] family looking on, [SURNAME] celebrated as it dropped in the hole. In one of the most emotional scenes ever witnessed on a golf course, [SURNAME] fell to [his] knees openly weeping as the crowd spontaneously united in a football style chant of [his] name.
"You deserved to win, said Woods as he shook [SURNAME] by the hand. I've never seen anybody play better golf than that. Thank you, replied a happy and modest [FORENAME] [SURNAME]. I always dreamed of being a top golf star and now I've got a trophy to prove that I am!
