1936 Masters
Recap and Scores for the 1936 Masters Golf Tournament

The winner of the first Masters in 1934 was Horton Smith. The winner of the third Masters - this one, the 1936 Masters - was Horton Smith. Smith thus became the first two-time winner of The Masters.

"Lighthorse" Harry Cooper held a three-stroke lead entering the final round, but managed only a 76. Smith caught and passed Cooper by shooting a 72 that included back-to-back birdies at Nos. 14 and 15 in the fourth round, the birdie at 14 coming on a 50-foot chip-in. Cooper is credited with 31 PGA Tour wins, but never won a major despite several close calls.

Weather played havoc with the 1936 Masters, forcing a 36-hole finish on Monday.
