1952 British Open Golf Tournament Results

The 1952 British Open was the 81st time the tournament was played.

Winner: Bobby Locke, 287

Where it was played: Royal Lytham & St. Annes Golf Club in Lytham St. Annes, England

Tournament dates: July 9-11, 1952

Leader after first round: Fred Daly, 67

Leader after second round: Fred Daly, 136

Leader after third round: Fred Daly, 213

Notable Notes: Fred Daly led the first two rounds, but his tournament really turned at the halfway point. In the third round — even though he maintained his lead — he shot 77. Daly followed that with a final-round 76 to fall to third place. Taking advantage of Daly's troubles was Bobby Locke, he was four behind Daly after 36 holes. But Locke shot 74-73 on the tough final day, winning by one shot over Peter Thomson.
