After twice finishing as a runner-up in The Open over the previous 12 years, Nick Price finally claimed the Claret Jug with a one-stroke victory over Jesper Parnevik at Turnberry.

The pair had a classic duel over the inward half. The Swede, 25, had three birdies in a row from the ninth and after a bogey at the 15th, birdied the 16th and 17th holes to go two clear. Price had played steadily all day but his finish was devastating.
