1982 British Open

 

The 1982 British Open was the 111th time the tournament was played.

Winner: Tom Watson, 284

Where it was played: Royal Troon Golf Club in Troon, Scotland

Tournament dates: July 15-18, 1982

Leader after first round: Bobby Clampett, 67

Leader after second round: Bobby Clampett, 133

Leader after third round: Bobby Clampett, 211

Notable Notes: Young Bobby Clampett opened with rounds of 67 and 66, taking a 5-stroke lead after the midway point. But he struggled on the weekend - even though he maintained his lead after the third round despite shooting 78. A 77 in the fourth round sank his hopes. Moving to the top was Tom Watson, who won by a stroke over Peter Oosterhuis and Nick Price. It was Watson's fourth win in a British Open.
