1982 Masters
Recap and Scores for the 1982 Masters Golf Tournament

If things had turned out differently - if Craig Stadler had lost the 1982 Masters in a playoff rather than winning it in a playoff - Stadler might be remembered for one of the biggest flops in major championship history. But that's the difference between winning and losing, isn't it?

Instead, Stadler is remembered as the 1982 Masters champion, beating Dan Pohl with a par on the first playoff hole.

But Stadler put himself into that playoff by blowing a six-stroke lead with nine holes to play. Stadler began the third round three strokes ahead of the quartet of Seve Ballesteros, Tom Kite, Tom Weiskopf and Pohl. But heading to the back nine, Stadler had increased his lead to six.

Weiskopf blew up on the back nine with a couple triple-bogeys. Ballesteros and Kite failed to charge. But Pohl, playing three groups ahead of Stadler, carded a 67 to post 4-under.

Stadler still led by four strokes after his 11th hole, but then whittled away that lead. He bogied the 12th, the 14, and the 16th, reaching the 72nd hole with a 1-stroke advantage over Pohl. And then 3-putted for a bogey, dropping into the playoff.

Which was a bit anticlimactic - Pohl struggled, Stadler played solidly and won with a par.
