Cameron Smith WITB: Here's the equipment used to claim The Open

Cameron Smith overturned a four-stroke deficit going into the final round of the 150th Open Championship to claim the Claret Jug. 

It represented his major victory. On the basis of his form this season, you would bet on the 28-year-old Australian winning a few more.

One of the many reasons why Smith claimed victory was down to his superb putting. He played the back nine in 30 strokes without a bogey.

That back nine contained as many as six birdies and one of the most incredible up and downs you are ever likely to see. 

Smith hit a poor approach into the famous Road Hole at 17. There was nothing and the Aussie decided to trust his Scotty Cameron 009M Prototype to nestle his golf ball as close as he could to the pin.

He then held his nerve from 10 feet to retain his one-stroke advantage over Rory McIlroy then proceeded to birdie the 18th.

That, as they say, was that. Smith scooped a massive winner's check and was reduced to tears at the Old Course.
