1906 British Open Winner and Scores

The 1906 British Open was the 46th time this major was played.

Winner: James Braid, 300

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

Tournament dates: June 13-15, 1906

Leader after first round: John Graham Jr., 71

Leader after second round: J.H. Taylor, 149

Leader after third round: J.H. Taylor, 224

Notable Notes: Defending champ James Braid trailed leader J.H. Taylor by three strokes entering the final round. But in that final round, only two golfers went lower than 77. Braid (73) was one of them, Taylor (80) was not. ... It was the third of Braid's five Open victories. ... This was the last of three times that the three members of the so-called "Great Triumvirate" finished 1-2-3 in an Open. Here, it was Braid, Taylor and Harry Vardon in third place.
