1894 British Open Winner and Scores

The 1894 British Open was the 34th time this major was played but the first time it was ever played outside of Scotland.

Winner: J.H. Taylor, 326

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

Tournament dates: June 11-12, 1894

Leader after first round: Sandy Herd, 83

Leader after second round: J.H. Taylor, 164

Leader after third round: J.H. Taylor, 245

Notable Notes: J.H. Taylor won the first of his five Open Championships here. It was also the first won by any of the "Great Triumvirate": Taylor, Harry Vardon and James Braid, who among them won 16 Opens. ... As the first British Open played outside Scotland, it also marked the debut of Royal St. George's in the Open rota. ... Taylor was the first non-Scottish pro golfer to win the Open (John Ball, an English amateur, had previously won.)
