Max Faulkner wins the Open Championship at Royal Portrush GC in Northern Ireland. It is the only time the Open has been played outside Scotland and England, and it would be another 18 years before a British golfer would win the Claret Jug again - Tony Jacklin in 1969.
Arnaud Massy is born in Biarritz, France. An ex-sardine fisherman and former caddie, in 1907 he won the Open Championship at Hoylake by two shots from J.H. Taylor, becoming the first non-Briton to win the Open. Massy died in 1950, but remains to this day the only Frenchman to have won a major championship, although two have finished second - Jean Van de Velde (1999 Open Championship) and Grégory Havret (2010 US Open).
