    I am always amazed that with the huge leaps in technology that the scores today aren't significantly better.

    It was hard to play then and it's still a hard game, course design has evolved along with the equipment and the rules. All of which still makes it the best game ever

    The courses were much shorter then.  It has always been a short game game anyway..  The days of old when woods were wood.

    I am sure most here know but just in case you didn't  Harry Vardon had 6 open wins.  James Braid and J.H. Taylor each had 5 wins.
