Location  Brookline, Massachusetts

The 1913 U.S. Open was the 19th U.S. Open, held September 18–20 at The Country Club in Brookline, Massachusetts, a suburb southwest of Boston. Amateur Francis Ouimet, age 20, won his only U.S. Open title in an 18-hole playoff, five strokes ahead of Britons Harry Vardon and Ted Ray.



The first two rounds were played Thursday and the final two rounds on Friday. At the end of regulation, there was a three-way tie. Ouimet defeated Vardon and Ray in a Saturday playoff round. Ouimet won with a score of 72 (–1), Vardon was second with 77, and Ray came in third with a 78. It was widely hailed as a stunning upset over the strongly-favored Britons and increased the popularity of the game in the United States.

Ouimet's victory was the first of eight times an amateur won the U.S. Open; Bobby Jones won four and the last was Johnny Goodman in 1933.

The U.S. Open returned to the course for the 50th and 75th anniversaries in 1963 and 1988, and the U.S. Amateur was held at The Country Club on the centennial anniversary in 2013; it also hosted the Ryder Cup in 1999. All four events, except the 2013 U.S. Amateur, were won by Americans.
