1938 Masters


The 1938 Masters Tournament marked the fifth anniversary edition.

Winner: Henry Picard, 285

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

Tournament dates: April 1-4, 1938

Leader after first round: Harry Cooper, 68

Leader after second round: Ed Dudley, 139

Leader after third round: Henry Picard, 215

Notable Notes: For the only time in the tournament's history, play was scheduled to begin on Friday rather than Thursday. Friday's play was washed out, however, so the schedule was 18 holes on Saturday, 36 on Sunday and 18 holes for a Monday finish.

And at that finish the winner was Henry Picard by two strokes over Ralph Guldahl and Harry Cooper. It was the first of two career major wins for Picard.
