Question: Who Is the Youngest Winner of the British Open Golf Tournament
Answer: The all-time recordholder as youngest winner of the British Open is Young Tom Morris, who was 17 years, 5 months and 3 days old when he won the 1868 British Open. Morris Jr.'s win came one year after his father, Old Tom Morris, set the all-time record as oldest winner.

Post-1900, the youngest winner is Seve Ballesteros, who was the 1979 Open champion at the age of 22 years, 3 months and 12 days old.
