1936 Masters


The 1936 Masters Tournament was the third one played.

Winner: Horton Smith, 285

Where it was played: Augusta National Golf Club, Augusta, Georgia

Tournament dates: April 3-6, 1936

Leader after first round: Harry Cooper, 70

Leader after second round: Harry Cooper, 139

Leader after third round: Harry Cooper, 210

Notable Notes: "Lighthorse Harry" Cooper led after each of the first three rounds, but he didn't lead after the one that mattered most. Instead, Horton Smith won by a stroke over Cooper, shooting 72 to Cooper's 76 in the final round. Smith thus became the first 2-time champion at The Masters. Smith made his move on the 14th and 15th holes with back-to-back birdies, the first coming on a 50-foot chip-in.
