Smith, after drinking champagne and having completed his media duties at Royal Queensland Golf Club’s Media Department, was able to go into the Breakfast Creek Hotel bar to witness his crowning moment on a TV replay.

The footage of the World No. 3 showed him roaring home his putt to fellow viewers. 3. Despite still wearing his shirt, he was lifted high to lead an ole chorus.

As usual, all of this was done with a pint in his hand. Smith celebrated his career-defining win at the 150th Open Championship in July with a dramatic display of skill. He promised to drink as many beers as he could in the Claret Jug.

Smith said that two cans of beer could fit inside the container. Smith spoke to reporters at St. Andrews. “I will probably have around 20 Claret Jugs tonight.”

“I can’t believe that she did it!”

In the aftermath of his latest triumph, the 29-year-old gave an emotional interview. He dedicated the win to his Nan Carol.

Carol, despite only having recently completed two chemotherapy treatments and walked the entire 72-hole journey of her grandson in a tournament twice-paused by severe weather. Des’s birthday also coincided with championship Sunday.

Smith said to reporters, “I cannot believe she did that.”

“Everyone told her to slow down at the beginning of the week, and she did just that. It was amazing. It was inspiring.

“When we went in that second time, I thought I was tired. I went in and had a cup of coffee. Then, I got out and started playing solidly the last seven to eight holes.

“It was nice to know I could do that with very little fuel.”

Smith won 2 million Australian dollars (1.34m USD) in prize cash.
