1899 British Open Winner and Scores

Harry Vardon won again at the 1899 British Open, which was the 39th time this major was played.

Winner: Harry Vardon, 310

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

Tournament dates: June 7-8, 1899

Leader after first round: James Kinnell, Harry Vardon and Tom Williamson, 76

Leader after second round: Harry Vardon, 152

Leader after third round: Harry Vardon, 233

Notable Notes: Harry Vardon made it back-to-back wins in the Open, and held or shared the lead following each round. ... Vardon's lead at the midway point (at the end of Day 1, since it was 36 holes per day) was only one stroke over J.H. Taylor. But as a sign of how tough the Day 2 scoring conditions were, Vardon's third-round 81 actually extended his lead. ... It was Vardon's third Open Championship victory.
