1966 Masters
Recap and Scores for the 1966 Masters Golf Tournament

Who was the first back-to-back winner of The Masters? It was Jack Nicklaus, and he completed the feat at the 1966 Masters.

Nicklaus, the 1965 champion, plus Gay Brewer and Tommy Jacobs all finished 72 holes tied at even-par 288. So the trio headed into an 18-hole Monday playoff, which Nicklaus won by shooting 70. Jacobs had a 72 in the playoff and Brewer a 78.

Brewer had a chance to win in regulation, but bogied the 72nd hole. He did return to win the 1967 Masters, however.

His victory at the 1966 Masters was Nicklaus' third win at The Masters, and his fifth major championship victory.

The 1966 Masters was the final playing appearance in the tournament by Byron Nelson, who missed the cut.
