1952 Masters

 

The 1952 Masters Tournament was the event's 16th edition.

Winner: Sam Snead, 286

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

Tournament dates: April 3-6, 1952

Leader after first round: Ray Gafford and Johnny Palmer, 69

Leader after second round: Sam Snead, 137

Leader after third round: Ben Hogan and Sam Snead, 215

Notable Notes: It appeared set for a Sam Snead-Ben Hogan duel in the final round, but Hogan was blown away by strong winds that Snead managed to deal with. The result was a 72 for Snead and a 79 for Hogan, who fell into a tie for seventh. Snead wound up with a 4-stroke victory, his second Masters win. The Champions Dinner tradition was started at the 1952 Masters by Hogan.
