Following the problems caused by the large number of entries in 1911, qualification was re-introduced. Qualifying took place on 20, 21 and 22 June. The top 20 and ties qualified on each of the three days.
Ray extended his lead to five strokes after the third round and he was not seriously challenged in the final round, despite a 71 from Vardon. Despite his weight and with his nearest rivals still to complete their rounds, Ray was carried off the final green in triumph by some of his friends.
