For the first time the Championship offered prize money: 5 to the runner-up, 3 to the third place player and 2 for the fourth. The winner had only the glory and the belt for one year. If Old Tom had won, the belt would have been his to keep but, in unfavourable weather, Willie Park pipped his old rival by two shots.
