1874 British Open Winner and Scores

The 1874 British Open was the 14th time this major was played.

Winner: Mungo Park, 159

Where it was played: Musselburgh Links in Musselburgh, East Lothian, Scotland

Tournament dates: April 10, 1874

Leader after first round: Mungo Park, 75

Notable Notes: Mungo Park held a four-stroke lead following the morning 18, then held on to beat Young Tom Morris by two strokes for the title. Morris had his chances late, but missed a short putt on the next-to-last hole, then drove through the green on the final hole and dropped two more strokes. ... Park was the second member of his family to win; his brother, Willie Park Sr., had three Open victories already and would add a fourth. Willie Park Jr. later won two titles himself. ... Young Tom Morris was only 22, but this was final Open. He withdrew the following year after the death of his wife, then died later in 1875.
