1907 British Open Winner and Scores

The 1907 British Open was the 47th time this major was played, but for the first time it was won by a golfer who was not British.

Winner: Arnaud Massy, 312

Where it was played: Royal Liverpool Golf Club in Hoylake, England

Tournament dates: June 20-21, 1907

Leader after first round: Arnaud Massy and Walter Toogood, 76

Leader after second round: Arnaud Massy, 157

Leader after third round: J.H. Taylor, 234

Notable Notes: Arnaud Massy established many firsts at the 1907 Open: He was the first French golfer to win a major; the first non-British golfer to win the Open; and the first golfer from Continental Europe to win a major. ... Massy trailed J.H. Taylor by one stroke entering the final round, but shot 77 to Taylor's 80. ... It was the fourth year in a row for Taylor finishing second. ... Massy later lost the 1911 British Open in a playoff. ... There wasn't another Continental European champion at the Open until Seve Ballesteros in 1979.
