Winner: Charles Coody, 279

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

Tournament dates: April 8-11, 1971

Leader after first round: Charles Coody, 66

Leader after second round: Don January, 138

Leader after third round: Jack Nicklaus and Charles Coody, 209

Notable Notes: Charles Coody won only three times in his PGA Tour career, but he made one of those victories The Masters. Coody shared the third-round lead with Jack Nicklaus, and by the 14th hole trailed Johnny Miller by two strokes. But Coody was the one who made it happen down the stretch, birdying the 15th and 16th holes of the final round.
