1866 -1867 - 1866 -1867


Willie Park wins his third Open and equals Tom Morris’ achievement of three victories with a score of 169. Another Park from Musselburgh, David, took second place, two strokes behind – the first time that first and second place had been taken by players from the same course.


Tom Morris, now returned to his hometown of St Andrews, won for the fourth and last time. Once again, Park took second place, two strokes behind Morris’ total of 170, with the only other ex-champion in the field, Andrew Strath, third. This ended the Tom Morris/Willie Park period. Aged 46 Old Tom remains the oldest Open Championship winner.
