1950 Masters
Recap and Scores for the 1950 Masters Golf Tournament

With his victory at the 1950 Masters, Jimmy Demaret became the first three-time winner of the tournament. The flashily attired, quick-with-a-quip Texan also won the 1940 and 1947 Masters tournaments, and his three Masters victories make up Demaret's full complement of wins in majors.

Demaret won the 1950 Masters by overcoming a 4-stroke deficit to Jim Ferrier at the start of the final round. Demaret shot 69 in the final round to Ferrier's 75, a six-shot swing. Ferrier finished second. All the movement took place on the final nine, which Demaret entered trailing Ferrier by five. But Ferrier struggled to a 41 over the last nine holes. Ferrier bogied the 13th and 14th, double-bogied the 16th, and bogied the 17th and 18th.
