1952 Masters
Recap and Scores for the 1952 Masters Golf Tournament

The Champions Dinner is a longstanding tradition at The Masters. It's the dinner held each year during tournament week at Augusta, hosted by the defending champion, with the defending champ responsible for selecting the menu. The 1952 Masters was the site of the very first Champions Dinner, which was arranged by Ben Hogan.

That was off the course. On the course at the 1952 Masters, the winner was Sam Snead. It was Snead's second victory at The Masters, and the sixth of his seven career victories in major championships.

Snead won despite shooting 77 in the third round. The final two rounds were played under very windy conditions, leading to tough scoring conditions, and despite that 77 Snead entered the final round tied for the lead. His even-par 72 in the final round was good enough to pull away for a 4-stroke victory over Jack Burke Jr.
