Louis Oosthuizen currently owns an eight-stroke lead with six holes remaining in the 139th British Open. As massive as that seems, the 27-year-old South African needs to go a little to match the largest margin which is the 13 strokes Tom Morris Sr. won by in 1862 at Prestwick.
Here’s a look at some of the others:
|13 strokes||Tom Morris Sr.||1862|
|12 strokes||Tom Morris Jr.||1870|
|11 strokes||Tom Morris Jr.||1869|
|8 strokes||J.H. Taylor||1900, 1913|
|8 strokes||James Braid||1908|
|8 strokes||Tiger Woods||2000|
