1941 Masters
Recap and Scores for the 1941 Masters Golf Tournament

Craig Wood finished second in the first Masters in 1934. Then he finished second in second Masters in 1935. In the latter, Wood lost in a playoff to Gene Sarazen.

In fact, by the time Wood reached the 1941 Masters, he was still winless in majors, but had lost playoffs at all four of what are now known as the major championships: The Masters, U.S. Open, British Open and PGA Championship. (Nearly five decades later, Greg Norman managed the same feat.)

At the 1941 Masters, Wood finally broke through for that major championship victory. Wood took the lead on the first day with a 66 and never relinquished it, becoming the first wire-to-wire winner at The Masters.

The 1941 Masters also marks the final major championship appearance by 11-time major winner Walter Hagen. Hagen's career was already in decline by the time The Masters began in 1934, and his best finish here was a tie for 11th. Hagen carded an 87 in the first round of the 1941 Masters and then withdrew.
