1995 British Open: Daly Affirmation

The 1995 British Open was the 124th time the tournament was played, and it was won by John Daly in a playoff.

Winner: John Daly, 282

Where it was played: The Old Course at St. Andrews, Scotland

Tournament dates: July 20-23, 1995

Leader after first round: John Daly, Mark McNulty, Ben Crenshaw and Tom Watson, 67

Leader after second round: John Daly, Brad Faxon and Kasuyoshi Tomori, 138

Leader after third round: Michael Campbell, 207

Notable Notes: John Daly shared the lead the first two rounds, but a third-round 72 dropped him four strokes off the lead of Michael Campbell, and two behind second-place Constantino Rocca. In the final round, Campbell shot 76 and fell into a tie for second, while Daly and Rocca wound up tied at 282.

Daly appeared to have won it on the final hole when Rocca, who needed a birdie to tie, badly flubbed a chip shot to the green. But then Rocca improbably rolled in a 65-foot putt through the Valley of Sin, forcing the playoff.

In the 4-hole, aggregate-score playoff, Daly was two ahead through two holes when Rocca triple-bogied the third hole.
