Nick Faldo forced himself to “play the best four holes of my life” to win the 1992 Open, claiming the Claret Jug for the third time in six years as he joined only James Braid as a double Champion Golfer at Muirfield.

He equalled his own record of 199 for the 54-hole total and led by four with a round to play. But in contrast to his 18 pars at Muirfield in 1987, the standard of golf slipped and Faldo kept leaking shots.

When John Cook birdied the 15th and 16th holes, the Englishman found himself two behind with four to play.
