1938 Masters
Recap and Scores for the 1938 Masters Golf Tournament

Henry Picard was the winner of the 1938 Masters, edging runners-up "Lighthorse" Harry Cooper and Ralph Guldahl by two strokes. It was Guldahl's second straight second-place finish in The Masters. Picard would go on to win another major at the 1939 PGA Championship.

The 1938 Masters marked Ben Hogan's first appearance in the tournament. He finished 25th, and didn't finish outside the Top 10 again when playing The Masters until 1958.

This was the final year in which the tournament was played under its original name, the Augusta National Invitation Tournament.
