||Englishman George Duncan wins the first Open Championship after World War I at Deal (Royal Cinque Ports), beating 1902 Champion Sandy Herd by two shots with a score of 303. Very windy conditions made scoring difficult, but Duncan triumphed with a new No. 1 wood he had bought at the 'Championship Exhibition of Golf Equipment'.
It was the second and last Open played over the Deal links, the first being in 1909. Purists regret that this superb test of golf no longer hosts the Championship, being somewhat handicapped as a major spectator venue by a strictly 'out and in' configuration of the two nines, somewhat similar to St Andrews. Deal remains, however, an important venue for major amateur events, and is the home of the Halford Hewitt Public Schools Championship.
