1991 Masters
Recap and Scores for the 1991 Masters Golf Tournament

Ian Woosnam outlasted Tom Watson and Jose Maria Olazabal to win the 1991 Masters. In so doing, Woosnam became the first Welshman to win one of golf's majors.

Woosnam, playing partner Watson, and Olazabal were tied at 11-under as Woosnam and Watson reached the final tee. Up ahead, on the green, Olazabal bogied to fall out of the tie. He finished second, but would later win two Masters of his own.

Then it was Watson's turn to fall out of the lead with a double-bogey. Only Woosnam held steady, recording a 72nd-hole par to grab the Green Jacket.

The 1991 Masters marked the final appearance in this tournament of Lee Trevino, who finished tied for 49th. Trevino never finished higher than a tie for 10th at The Masters, and even skipped the tournament a few times earlier in his career, believing his game wasn't suited to Augusta National.

On the other end of his career was Phil Mickelson, who played The Masters for the first time this year, getting in on the strength of his 1990 U.S. Amateur victory. Mickelson was still a member of the Arizona State University golf team, but made the cut, and later in the 1991 PGA Tour season won the Northern Telecom Open as an amateur.
