1929 US Open

 

The 1929 U.S. Open was the 33rd time the tournament was played, and Bobby Jones won in a playoff.

Winner: Bobby Jones, 294

Where it was played: Winged Foot Golf Club in Mamaroneck, New York

Tournament dates: June 27-30, 1929

Leader after first round: Bobby Jones, 69

Leader after second round: Al Espinosa and Gene Sarazen, 142

Leader after third round: Bobby Jones, 215

Notable Notes: Bobby Jones held a three-shot advantage entering the final round, but struggled to shoot 79. That dropped him into a tie with Al Espinosa at 294, so they played a 36-hole playoff. And the playoff was no contest. Espinosa shot 84 in the morning 18 to trail by 12, and Jones wound up winning by 23 shots.
