1947 US Open

 

The 1947 U.S. Open was the 47th time the tournament was played. It ended with an 18-hole playoff.

Winner: Lew Worsham, 282

Where it was played: St. Louis Country Club in Ladue, Missouri

Tournament dates: June 12-15, 1947

Leader after first round: Chick Harbert and Henry Ransom, 67

Leader after second round: Chick Harbert and Dick Metz, 139

Leader after third round: Lew Worsham, 211

Notable Notes: Lew Worsham beat Sam Snead in a playoff to win his only major championship title, and deny Snead yet another U.S. Open. Snead never won a U.S. Open, and this was one of four times he finished second. The two tied at 282 in regulation play. In the 18-hole playoff, Snead led by two strokes after the 15th hole, but Worsham birdied the 16th, and then Snead bogied the 17th and 18th. The final scores were 69 for Worsham and 70 for Snead.
