1925 US Open

 

The 1925 U.S. Open was the 29th time the tournament was played. It ended in a 36-hole playoff.

Winner: Willie Macfarlane, 291

Where it was played: Worcester Country Club in Worcester, Massachussetts

Tournament dates: June 3-5, 1925

Leader after first round: Francis Ouiment, 70

Leader after second round: Willie Macfarlane and Leo Diegel, 141

Leader after third round: Willie Macfarlane, 213

Notable Notes: In the second round, Willie Macfarlane set a new tournament record of 67. In the final round, he scored 11 shots higher (78), which cost him outright victory. Instead, he was forced into an 18-hole playoff against Bobby Jones. But both golfers shot 75, so Macfarlane and Jones had to play another 18. Jones took a 4-stroke lead at the turn in the second 18, but Macfarlane turned in a magnificent 33 over the final nine to win by one stroke.
