Royal St. George`s


Open Championship 1938


Reg Whitcombe beat the elements.

The last two days were played in a shrieking gale, and Whitcombe's rounds of 75 and 78 (giving a total of 295) were sufficient to hold Jimmy Adams (297) and Henry Cotton (298) at bay.

A young South African, Bobby Locke, made his professional debut in this Open.
