The 118th Open came to a dramatic conclusion at Royal Troon in 1989 and Wayne Grady was at the heart of it.
The Australian led the way after 24 and 36 holes, beginning his final round on 12-under and a shot clear of Tom Watson.
As it transpired, his main rivals would emerge from further back and he ended up tying with Mark Calcavecchia and Greg Norman, who had started the day seven shots behind his compatriot.
Calcavecchia triumphed in The Open’s first three-way play-off – and the first to be played over four holes, rather than a full extra 18 – but Grady would not let a second shot at a major slip his grasp as he won the PGA Championship in 1990.
He went on to appear at six more Open Championships, tying for ninth in 1993 in what would turn out to be the final top-10 finish of his career.
