1983 Masters
Recap and Scores for the 1983 Masters Golf Tournament

Seve Ballesteros won his second Masters championship, but he had to wait until Monday to do it. Rain cancelled play during Friday's second round, pushing the tournament's finish back a day until Monday.

We're sure the wait was worth it for Ballesteros, who finished four strokes in front of a stellar cast of chasers - Ben Crenshaw and Tom Kite, Raymond Floyd and Tom Watson and Hale Irwin. But Ballesteros took most of the drama out of the day early, starting his final round 4-under over the first four holes.

The 1983 Masters is also notable as the final Masters in which Arnold Palmer played the weekend. Palmer opened with a 68, just a stroke off the lead. He faded over the following three rounds, but this goes down as the last time he made the cut in a Masters.
