RECAP: Henry Cotton began his title defense with a 68, only to fall back as Charles Whitcombe had a 68 on the second day to take the lead. Alf Perry took the lead for the first time with a 67 in the third round, giving him a one-shot advantage over Whitcombe heading into the afternoon. A strong player and accurate with the fairway woods, Perry closed with a 72 and won his only Open title comfortably. Alf Padgham never shot worse than 74 all week and finished second. The low American was Lawson Little, the U.S. and British Amateur champion. He would win the U.S. Open five years later as a pro.
NOTEWORTHY: Perry's 283 stood as the low score at Muirfield until Jack Nicklaus beat it by one shot in 1966.
WINNER: Walter Hagen
RUNNER-UP: Johnny Farrell.
MARGIN: 6 shots.
EARNINGS: 75 pounds.
RECAP: Old Tom Morris laid out the links in the late 19th century, but Harry Colt was brought in to lengthen and revamp Muirfield. This was the first British Open since Colt's work, and Walter Hagen captured his fourth and final British Open. Six shots behind after the first round, Hagen set a then-championship record with a 67 in the second round. In wind so vicious it toppled tents, Hagen shot 75 in the third round to build a four-shot lead over Percy Alliss, and closed with another 75 to win by six.
