Notable Notes: Bob Goalby won the 1968 Masters, but he should have been forced into a playoff rather than winning by one stroke after 72 holes. A scorekeeping error helped Goalby to the victory.
Roberto de Vicenzo made a birdie 3 on the 17th hole of the final round, but his marker, future Masters champ Tommy Aaron, incorrectly wrote down a 4. De Vicenzo didn't catch the error, which meant that he signed an incorrect scorecard. The higher score - the 4, rather than the 3 - stood. Which meant that instead of tying Goalby at 277 (which de Vicenzo actually shot), de Vicenzo's score went into the record books as 278, and him as the runner-up.
Goalby earned it, though, shooting a final-round 66 that included a 4-under stretch in holes 13-15.
