1908 British Open Winner and Scores

The 1908 British Open was the 48th time this major was played and it included a couple scoring records.

Winner: James Braid, 291

Where it was played: Prestwick Golf Club in Prestwick, South Ayrshire, Scotland

Tournament dates: June 18-19, 1908

Leader after first round: Ernest Gray, 68

Leader after second round: James Braid, 142

Leader after third round: James Braid, 219

Notable Notes: Ernest Gray tied the Open tournament scoring record of 68 in the first round, but James Braid was only two behind. ... Braid seized the lead after Round 2 with a 72 to Gray's 79, and Gray afterward fell out of the picture. ... Braid, however, just kept going, leading by six following Round 3 and winning by eight. His final total of 291 lowered the previous scoring record of 296 set by Jack White in 1904.
