2001 Masters

Recap and Scores for the 2001 Masters Tournament

The 2001 Masters is where Tiger Woods completed what is known as the "Tiger Slam." Woods won the final three majors of 2000 - the U.S. Open, British Open and PGA Championship - and then won the first major of 2001. The Masters. And that gave Woods ownership off all four major trophies at the same time.

The traditional Grand Slam refers to winning all four majors in the same year. The Tiger Slam means holding all four major championships simultaneously (in other words, winning all four in a row, but not in the same calendar year). Bobby Jones is the only golfer to win the Grand Slam, but he did it at a time when the four majors included two amateur championships. No golfer has ever won all four professional majors in the same year.

And here, at the 2001 Masters, Tiger Woods became the first golfer to complete the slam that is now named after him, the Tiger Slam.

The victory here was Woods' second Masters title and his sixth overall major.

Woods took a one-stroke lead over Phil Mickelson into the final round in 2001. But it wasn't Mickelson who challenged Woods in the final round, although Mickelson played well with a round of 70. David Duval made a charge with a round of 67, tied for low-round of the day.

Duval started the final round three strokes behind Woods, and with a birdie on the 15th hole moved into a tie for the lead. But Duval bogied the 16th hole and missed a needed birdie putt on the final hole. Woods closed with a 68 and birdied the 72nd hole to achieve the final 2-stroke margin of victory.

Gay Brewer, winner of the 1967 Masters, made his final appearance in the event, withdrawing after playing the first round. This was also the final Masters at which Byron Nelson served as an honorary starter.
