1946 U.S. Open Results

The 1946 U.S. Open was the 46th time the tournament was played; it ended with a 36-hole playoff.

Winner: Lloyd Mangrum, 284

Where it was played: Canterbury Golf Club in Beachwood, Ohio

Tournament dates: June 12-16, 1946

Leader after first round: Toney Penna and Sam Snead, 69

Leader after second round: Vic Ghezzi and Ben Hogan, 140

Leader after third round: Byron Nelson, 211

Notable Notes: Byron Nelson led Lloyd Mangrum and Vic Ghezzi by one stroke heading into the final round, but the three golfers wound up tied at 284. So they entered in an 18-hole playoff. All three shot 72s in the playoff, so they continued with another 18 holes. And at the end of those 36 playoff holes, the winning margin was still only one stroke. The winner was Lloyd Mangrum at 144; Nelson and Ghezzi finished at 145. ... Herman Barron had a birdie putt on the 72nd hole that would have won him the tournament, but three-putted and finished tied for fourth.
