1921 U.S. Open
Recap and Scores for the 1921 U.S. Open Golf Tournament

Jim Barnes and Walter Hagen engaged in some notable duels in their careers. But this was not one of them - despite the fact that Barnes won and Hagen was second (tied with Fred McLeod). That's because Barnes dominated the 1921 U.S. Open after starting with a first-round 69 - a full 10 strokes better than Hagen's opening round.

So although Hagen was runner-up to Barnes, he was a distant runner-up. Barnes won by nine strokes.

For Barnes, it was his only U.S. Open win, and the third of his four victories in majors.

The tournament was played in Chevy Chase, Maryland, close enough to Washington, D.C., for American President Warren Harding to attend on the final day. He presented the championship trophy to Barnes, making Barnes the only golfer to receive the U.S. Open trophy from the United States president.

Chick Evans, 1916 U.S. Open winner, edged Bobby Jones, playing in just his second U.S. Open, for low amateur honors.
