The results for 1868, like 1869, are in some doubt. Young Tom was the winner, no question about that, but McArthur's Golfer's Annual for the following year places Tom senior in second place between his son and Robert Andrew.

Played on the 23rd of September this was Young Tomís first championship success and, at 17, he remains the youngest winner of the Open.
