1982 Open Championship

The 1982 Open Championship was the 111th Open Championship held from 15–18 July at Royal Troon Golf Club in Troon, Scotland. Tom Watson won his fourth Open Championship, one stroke ahead of runners-up Peter Oosterhuis and Nick Price. It was Watson's second consecutive major victory; he won the U.S. Open a month earlier, and the seventh of his eight major titles.


Watson became the fifth to win the U.S. Open and the Open Championship in the same year, joining fellow Americans Bobby Jones (1926, 1930), Gene Sarazen (1932), Ben Hogan (1953), and Lee Trevino (1971). Tiger Woods later won both in 2000.

Watson's previous three Open wins also came in Scotland, at Carnoustie (1975), Turnberry (1977), and Muirfield (1980). His fifth victory in the Open in 1983 came at Royal Birkdale in England.
