1974 Masters


The 1974 Masters was the 38th edition of the tournament. Gary Player won it for the second time.

Winner: Gary Player, 278

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

Tournament dates: April 11-14, 1974

Leader after first round: Jim Colbert, 67

Leader after second round: Dave Stockton, 137

Leader after third round: Dave Stockton, 207

Notable Notes: Gary Player hovered around the top of the leaderboard all week, then on the next-to-last hole of the tournament he struck a blow for the championship. Actually, he struck a 9-iron approach to the 17th green in the final round, which stopped at tap-in range. That late birdie propelled Player to the second of his three Masters titles, a 2-stroke victory over Dave Stockton and Tom Kite.
