It's the lowest final round ever by a winner at St. Andrews, and Smith matched the major championship score to par at 20 under. Cameron Young finished second.

The two-time winner at St. Andrews had two double bogeys on his way to a 78. That's his second-highest score ever in the Open and leaves him six shots out of the cut line.
