Tournament dates: June 8-10, 1933

Leader after first round: Tommy Armour, 68

Notable Notes: Johnny Goodman, an amateur, took the lead with a 66 in the second round that tied the then-tournament scoring record. He added a 70 in the third round to open a 6-shot lead. Ralph Guldahl nearly closed that gap in the final round, shooting 71 to Goodman's 76, but the amateur held on for the victory.
