1933 British Open Winner and Scores

The 1933 British Open was the 68th time this major was played, and two Americans played off to determine the victor.

Winner: Denny Shute, 292

Where it was played: The Old Course at St. Andrews, Scotland

Tournament dates: July 5-8, 1933

Leader after first round: Walter Hagen, 68

Leader after second round: Walter Hagen, 140

Leader after third round: Henry Cotton, Leo Diegel, Syd Easterbrook, Joe Kirkwood Sr. and Abe Mitchell, 216

Notable Notes: Denny Shute trailed the five co-leaders by three strokes entering the final round. Craig Wood was one behind. Then Shute shot 73 and Wood 75 in Round 4, and on a day of high scores that was good enough for both to pass up the third-round leaders. ... But it wasn't enough for one of them to pass the other: They tied at 292. ... The next day, Shute and Wood played a 36-hole playoff, which Shute won by five strokes (75-74—149 to 78-76—154). ... This was the first of Shute's three career wins in majors.
