1907 U.S. Open
Recap and Scores for the 1907 U.S. Open Golf Tournament

Alex Ross - brother of famed golf course architect Donald Ross - won the 1907 U.S. Open by two strokes over Gilbert Nicholls.

Donald Ross himself was still playing tournament golf at this point, and finished 10th, 10 strokes behind his brother.

Alex Ross had a 1-stroke lead over Jack Hobens at the midway point, and Hobens accomplished something in the second round that had never been done before in a U.S. Open: He made a hole-in-one.

After three rounds, Hobens lead Ross by two strokes, but Hobens soared to an 85 in Round 4 and fell back to fourth place. Ross shot 76 and also passed up Gilbert Nicholls (79), the eventual runner-up, to claim the trophy.
