1949 Masters
Recap and Scores for the 1949 Masters Golf Tournament

The 1949 Masters is the tournament where the Green Jacket was first presented to the winner. Why did that become a tradition here? See the FAQ, "Why are Masters winners presented with a Green Jacket?"

And which player was the first to get his Green Jacket? Sam Snead, who began the final round trailing by one stroke but fired his second straight 67 to win by three shots. For Snead, it was career major No. 3, and the first of his three Masters victories.
