1900 U.S. Open
Recap and Scores for the 1900 U.S. Open Golf Tournament

Two-third of Britain's "Great Triumvirate" of golfers was entered in the 1900 U.S. Open, and they finished 1-2. Harry Vardon was the winner, and J.H. Taylor the runner-up.

It was Vardon's first time playing the U.S. Open. He was in America on an exhibition tour for Spalding Sporting Goods, which made the "Vardon Flyer" golf ball. Vardon played the U.S. Open only twice more, and was runner-up both times (1913 and 1920).

Taylor was also playing the U.S. Open for the first time, and he played it only once more. Taylor was coincidentally in America for business purposes in 1900, giving him this opportunity.

(The third member of the Great Triumvirate, James Braid, never played a U.S. Open.)

Vardon led Taylor by a stroke after 36 holes and by four shots following the third round. Vardon then carded 80 to Taylor's 78 for the final 2-stroke margin of victory. The third-place finisher, David Bell, was another seven shots behind Taylor.
