Early life

Jamie Anderson (golfer) Jamie Anderson golfer Wikipedia

Anderson was born in St Andrews, Scotland, the son of David "Da" Anderson, greenskeeper at the Old Course.

Golf career

Anderson's Open Championships victories were at Musselburgh in 1877; Prestwick Golf Club in 1878; and St Andrews in 1879. He is one of only four golfers who have won three consecutive Opens, alongside Young Tom Morris (1868–1870), Bob Ferguson (1880–82) and Peter Thomson (1954–56). Anderson did not compete in 1880 because the date of the tournament was set so late that he missed entry. He was runner-up the next year 1881. His nephew David was runner-up in 1888 and all of his sons were golf professionals.

Death and legacy

Anderson died in a poorhouse in Thornton, Fife, Scotland. He won the Open Championship three consecutive times: 1877, 1878, and 1879.
