1929 British Open Winner and Scores

The 1929 British Open was the 64th time this major was played.

Winner: Walter Hagen, 292

Where it was played: Muirfield links in Gullane, East Lothian, Scotland

Tournament dates: May 8-10, 1929

Leader after first round: Percy Alliss, 69

Leader after second round: Leo Diegel, 140

Leader after third round: Walter Hagen, 218

Notable Notes: A second-round 67 — the lowest round of the Open and one of only three sub-70 rounds — got Walter Hagen into the running. Then he carded back-to-back 75s on a final day playing in strong winds, and won by six strokes. ... This was Hagen's 11th and final win in a major championship. ... Six-time winner Harry Vardon, age 59, played the Open for the final time and missed the cut.
