1976 British Open

 

The 1976 British Open was the 105th time the tournament was played.

Winner: Johnny Miller, 279

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

Tournament dates: July 7-10, 1976

Leader after first round: Norio Suzuki, Seve Ballesteros and Christy O'Connor Jr., 69

Leader after second round: Seve Ballesteros, 138

Leader after third round: Seve Ballesteros, 211

Notable Notes: Johnny Miller won the second (and last) of his two major championships, with another great final round. At his first major, the 1973 U.S. Open, Miller famously shot 63 in the final round. Here, Miller came from two strokes behind at the start of the final round to win by six with a 66 in Round 4. Miller passed up Seve Ballesteros in that final round. Ballesteros was only 19 years old, but he led the first three rounds.
