RECAP: One year after The Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers moved from Musselburgh to Muirfield, it hosted its first Open Championship. Entry fees were introduced for the first time to improve the quality of the field. English amateur Harold Hilton was seven shots behind after the first day of 36 holes. He closed with rounds of 72-74 on the second day — the low score of the third and fourth rounds — for a three-shot win. This remains the only time in major championship history that an amateur finished first and second.
NOTEWORTHY: This was the first British Open contested over two days and 72 holes.
