1937 US Open

 

The 1937 U.S. Open was the 41st time the tournament was played.

Winner: Ralph Guldahl, 281

Where it was played: Oakland Hills Country Club in Bloomington Hills, Michigan

Tournament dates: June 10-12, 1937

Leader after first round: Denny Shute and Sam Snead, 69

Leader after second round: Frank Walsh, Ralph Guldahl and Ed Dudley, 140

Leader after third round: Ed Dudley, 211

Notable Notes: Sam Snead played his first U.S. Open this year and finished runner-up, two strokes behind Ralph Guldahl. Snead went on to set a PGA Tour record with 82 career wins - but never won a U.S. Open. For Guldahl, it was the first of back-to-back U.S. Open titles. He shot 69 in the final round and his 281 total lowered the then-tournament scoring record.
