1935 British Open Winner and Scores

The 1935 British Open was the 70th time this major was played, but the first of two consecutive years golfers named Alf won.

Winner: Alf Perry, 283

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

Tournament dates: June 26-28, 1935

Leader after first round: Henry Cotton, 68

Leader after second round: Charles Whitcombe, 139

Leader after third round: Alf Perry, 211

Notable Notes: This was the first professional tournament won by Alf Perry, who went on to win only three more pro titles. ... After a third-round 67, Perry took a one-stroke lead into the final round. His final-round 72 was good enough, as most of his nearest challengers stumbled. ... The runner-up, Alf Padgham, won a year later at the 1936 British Open. ... Perry's 283 total tied the tournament scoring record of the time.
