Jordan Spieth, who had won the Masters and U.S. Open earlier in the year, was the obvious big story going in to The Open. He didn’t disappoint, but he finished one shot out of a four-hole, three-man playoff, won by Zach Johnson.

The Women’s British Open returned for a second time to the Old Course, and Stacy Lewis couldn’t have been happier. She had won all five of her matches on the Old Course in the 2008 Curtis Cup, her final amateur competition. So naturally she prevailed in 2013, winning her second major by two shots.

St. Andrews had periodically hosted the (men’s) Open Championship for nearly 135 years when women got their turn on the Old Course. Lorena Ochoa won the first of her major titles, prevailing by four strokes

Seve Ballesteros won his second Open Championship, while Tom Watson’s bid to win three straight Open Championships came up a couple of strokes short

Nicklaus’ third Open Championship title also completed his third career Grand Slam. Sneaking into the final top 10 at T-7 was a 21-year-old Nick Faldo. Wonder whatever became of him?

John Daly proved he was no one-major wonder and Costantino Rocca forced a playoff with one of the great “routine two-putts” in golf history. Valley of Sin indeed.

Doug Sanders had a 3-foot putt for the claret jug, but … he … stood … over … it … seemingly … forever … and … finally … missed. Nicklaus won their playoff the next day.

What was Tiger Woods going to do as an encore to his 15-shot win in the 2000 U.S. Open at Pebble Beach? How about win the Open Championship by eight at St. Andrews? Yes, that will do nicely.
