1926 US Open

 

The 1926 U.S. Open was the 30th time the tournament was played.

Winner: Bobby Jones, 293

Where it was played: Scioto Country Club in Columbus, Ohio

Tournament dates: July 8-10, 1926

Leader after first round: Bill Mehlhorn, 68

Leader after second round: Bill Mehlhorn, 143

Leader after third round: Joe Turnesa, 217

Notable Notes: Amateur Bobby Jones won his second U.S. Open and, since he had already won the 1930 British Open, became the first golfer to win both national Opens in the same year. He trailed Joe Turnesa by three entering the final round, but Jones shot 73 to Turnesa's 77 to overtake him and win the trophy.
