The best shots and key moments from a historic final round of The 149th Open at Royal St George's, where Collin Morikawa held off Jordan Spieth to win by two shots. Collin Morikawa created major history at Royal St George's as he celebrated his Open debut with a magnificent two-shot victory over Jordan Spieth. Morikawa, winner of last year's PGA Championship in only his second major appearance, held off riveting challenges from Spieth and Jon Rahm to become the first player in history to win two different majors at the first attempt. Final leaderboard The 149th Open, Royal St George's The ultra-composed 24-year-old fired a bogey-free 66 to claim victory on 15 under par, with Spieth's 66 earning him a runner-up place while Louis Oosthuizen suffered more major heartbreak as he stumbled to a closing 71 and had to settle for a podium finish on 11 under with Rahm. Seeking to emulate the debut victory of 500/1 outsider Ben Curtis on the Sandwich links 18 years ago, Morikawa began the final round one shot behind Oosthuizen and soon found himself tied at the top when the South African pulled his approach to the fourth and was unable to save par. Morikawa is the first player to win two majors at the first attempt Morikawa is the first player to win two majors at the first attempt Spieth dropped shots at the fourth and sixth only to launch himself back into the running with a brilliant eagle at the seventh, where there was a two-shot swing in the final pairing when Oosthuizen thinned his bunker splash-out across the green and took six, while Morikawa broke his run of pars with his first birdie of the day. Knowing he now had a two-stroke advantage over his playing partner, Morikawa resisted the temptation to attempt to protect his lead, and extended it with further birdies at eight and nine to go four clear, although Spieth reduced the deficit to three as he picked up shots at the ninth and 10th, where Morikawa made a clutch par save. Oosthuizen revived his hopes with a stunning tee shot to the par-three 11th which rattled the pin and set up his first birdie, but Spieth was the man piling the pressure on the leader nd the 2017 champion closed the gap to a single shot when he rolled in consecutive six-footers for birdies on 13 and 14.

Covid: Vaccine complications dwarfed by virus risks

A major review of vaccines suggests the AstraZeneca jab does raise the risk of blood clots and another serious condition that can cause bleeding. But the study found the risk of such problems following a coronavirus infection was still much higher. The University of Oxford-led team also found an increased risk of stroke after the Pfizer jab - but again at a much lower rate than after infection. The team said it once again showed the "substantial" benefit of vaccination. It comes after a coroner ruled on Thursday that BBC Radio Newcastle presenter Lisa Shaw died because of complications from the AstraZeneca jab. The 44-year-old died in May after developing headaches a week after getting her first dose. She suffered blood clots in the brain. Child jabs halted in trial as adult clot link probed AstraZeneca: Is there a blood clot risk? The research team looked at records from more than 29 million people who received a first dose of a Covid vaccine between December and April, who were mostly over 40, as well as nearly 1.8 million who were infected with the virus. The study, published in the British Medical Journal, looked for complications up to 28 days after being jabbed or infected. It found that for every 10 million people vaccinated with the AstraZeneca vaccine: an extra 107 would be hospitalised or die from thrombocytopenia, which can cause internal bleeding and haemorrhages, but that was nearly nine times lower than the risk of the same condition following an infection an extra 66 would be hospitalised or die from blood clots in the veins, but that was nearly 200 times lower than the risk following an infection For every 10 million people vaccinated with the Pfizer vaccine, it found: 143 extra strokes would be seen, but that was nearly 12 times lower than the risk following an infection media captionLead author Prof Julia Hippisley-Cox: "These are really reassuring results" Lead author Prof Julia Hippisley-Cox said it was important people were aware of the risks,
but that they were kept in context given the higher risk from being infected. Fellow author Prof Aziz Sheikh added the findings "clearly underscore" the importance of getting vaccinated to reduce the risk of these clotting and bleeding outcomes. Vaccinations, he said, offer a "substantial public health benefit".
