Spiranac tweeted: “Congrats to Cam Smith for a historic win. And congrats to myself for picking him to win.”

The American golfer added: “This Open has been incredible. One for the ages.

Smith, who became the first Australian to win The Open in 28 years, broke down in tears when speaking about his historic win.

The 28-year-old said: “I am going to fall apart I know.

“I want to thank my team for all the hard work we have done the last couple of years.

“This one definitely makes it worth it. Thanks to the R&A, fantastic week, St Andrews links, the volunteers and superintendent and everyone involved.

“It was awesome out there. The course was how an Open championship should be played. It was just unreal. Thank you guys so much.

“To the fans, I had a lot of support out there. Especially the Aussie guys, you kept me going out there. It seemed like there was a lot of you. This one is for Aus! Thanks guys.
