1930 British Open Winner and Scores

The 1930 British Open was the 65th time this major was played. And Bobby Jones won it on his way to the Grand Slam.

Winner: Bobby Jones, 291

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

Tournament dates: June 18-20, 1930

Leader after first round: Henry Cotton, Bobby Jones and Macdonald Smith, 70

Leader after second round: Bobby Jones, 142

Leader after third round: Archie Compston, 215

Notable Notes: In May, Bobby Jones won the British Amateur Championship. In June, he won the British Open — the first golfer since John Ball in 1890 to win both in the same year. ... Jones then went home to the USA and won the U.S. Open in July and U.S. Amateur in September, completing what was then considered the Grand Slam. It is the only single-season Grand Slam in men's golf history. ... Jones shared the lead after Round 1 and held it outright following Round 2. But in Round 3, Archie Compston shot 68 to take a one-stroke lead over Jones. ... Compston, though, soared to an 82 in the final round. Jones shot 75 and won by two strokes. ... This tournament is the last Open Championship won by an amateur.
