Historic, dramatic and unpredictable, the 144th Open will long be remembered. Featuring exclusive interviews with Zach Johnson, Jordan Spieth, Jason Day and all the leading figures of a compelling championship, 'Five Days in July' skillfully weaves together the many storylines that created such an unforgettable occasion. The canvas for this sporting masterpiece was the Old Course at St Andrews, the recognised home of golf. Outstanding performances, extreme weather, and the emotional farewell of Tom Watson, the greatest links player of the game s modern era, supplied ample colour. So did a notable absentee; when injury prevented world no.1 Rory McIlroy from defending, the spotlight shone brightly on a 21-year old Texan. Jordan Spieth arrived in Scotland having won both the Masters and US Open and his desire to remain on course for the elusive Grand Slam would illuminate the Championship. Jason Day was motivated to claim his major breakthrough; fellow Australian Marc Leishman so nearly upstaged everyone and Louis Oosthuizen came close to succeeding at St Andrews again, having dominated there in 2010. Paul Dunne, an amateur from Ireland, led after 54 holes, inspiring headlines around the world. The elements dictated a rare Monday finish and even then, 72 holes were not sufficient to decide who would lift the Claret Jug. In a dramatic play-off, it was a battler from America's mid-west that stood firm. After Five Days in July, Zach Johnson had outlasted and outplayed the field to become the Champion Golfer of the Year.
