1951 Masters
Recap and Scores for the 1951 Masters Golf Tournament

Skee Riegel and Sam Snead began the final round of the 1951 Masters with 1-stroke leads over Ben Hogan. Riegel played well, but Hogan played better. And Snead? He blew up with an 80 that included an 8 after hitting into water on the 11th, and the Slammer finished 11 strokes off the lead.

Riegel, a first-year pro, was solid with a 71, but Hogan played bogeyless golf in the final round, firing a 68 and winning by two strokes. For Hogan, it was his first Masters victory, and his fifth major championship win.
