1940 Masters

 

The 1940 Masters was the seventh time the tournament was played.

Winner: Jimmy Demaret, 280

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

Tournament dates: April 4-7, 1940

Leader after first round: Lloyd Mangrum, 64

Leader after second round: Jimmy Demaret and Lloyd Mangrum, 139

Leader after third round: Jimmy Demaret, 209

Notable Notes: Jimmy Demaret outraced fellow Texans Lloyd Mangrum and Byron Nelson to the finish line, winning by four shots over runner-up Mangrum and five over Nelson. It was the first of Demaret's three Masters wins.

Mangrum made history in the first round, shooting 64 - the first 64 recorded in any of the four professional majors (Masters, US Open, British Open, PGA Championship). But he stumbled with a second-round 75, and shot 74 in the final round.
