1965 British Open

 

The 1965 British Open was the 94th time the tournament was played.

Winner: Peter Thomson, 285

Where it was played: Royal Birkdale Golf Club in Southport, England

Tournament dates: July 7-9, 1965

Leader after first round: Tony Lema, 68

Leader after second round: Tony Lema and Bruce Devlin, 140

Leader after third round: Peter Thomson, 214

Notable Notes: In the 1950s, Peter Thomson won four British Opens, including three in row from 1954-56. His fifth and final win happened here. Thomson scored a modest 72 in the third round, but in tough scoring conditions that was enough to send him into the lead. A final-round 71 gave Thompson the 2-stroke victory over Brian Huggett and Christy O'Connor Sr.
