After winning the 150th Open at St Andrews, there was one thing on Cam Smith’s mind.

Moments after hoisting the Claret Jug on the 18th green at the Old Course, the Australian revealed his plan to find out how many beers he could fit in the historic trophy.

Now, the day after the night before, the newly-crowned major champion has revealed the results of his study.

“I guess everyone’s been asking the question of how many beers fit in the Claret Jug,” he said in a video posted on his Instagram account.

“It’s pretty much exactly two. I had a good night last night with it.”

Smith was clearly in the mood to celebrate after his victory at the Home of Golf.
