1900


Harry Vardon

The Open title went abroad for the first time in 1900. Harry Vardon spent most of the year in the United States on an exhibition tour, and he was joined in October at the Chicago Golf Club by J.H. Taylor, another great of British golf.

The two English professionals dominated the Championship, finishing first and second. Vardon's score was 79-78-76-80-313, two lower than Taylor's. It included a "whiff" on the final green, where he stabbed carelessly at a very short putt and missed the ball altogether.
