The 1913 Open Championship was the 53rd Open Championship, held 23–24 June at Royal Liverpool Golf Club in Hoylake, England. J.H. Taylor won the Championship for the fifth time, eight strokes ahead of runner-up Ted Ray.

Qualifying took place on 19, 20 and 21 June. The top 20 and ties qualified on each of the three days.

Ray led after the first day on 147, with Taylor on 148, Irishman Michael Moran on 150 and Thomas Renouf on 153.

Gale force winds on the second day led to some high scoring. Taylor and American John McDermott had the best scores in morning, scoring 77. Ray struggled and went round in 81, to trail Taylor by three shots, while McDermott was a further 4 strokes behind. Moran's chances were ruined by a third round 89 which included a 10 at the 1st. In the final round, Taylor holed from about 50 yards at the 14th, while his nearest rivals had poor starts to their rounds, Ray took eight at the 3rd hole while McDermott took 7 at the 1st. Moran had the best final round with a 74, 15 shots better than his morning round.
