1928 British Open Winner and Scores

The 1928 British Open was the 63rd time this major was played.

Winner: Walter Hagen, 292

Where it was played: Royal St. George's Golf Club in Sandwich, England

Tournament dates: May 9-11, 1928

Leader after first round: Bill Mehlhorn, 71

Leader after second round: Jose Jurado, 145

Leader after third round: Walter Hagen, 220

Notable Notes: Two weeks after losing a 72-hole challenge match to Archie Compston by the lopsided score of 18-and-17, Walter Hagen rebounded to win his third Open title. Compston finished third, three behind, with Gene Sarazen the runner-up, two behind Hagen. ... It was the 10th of Hagen's 11 career wins in majors. ... Harry Vardon, age 58, made the cut here — the last time for the 6-time Open champion.
