1980 Masters

 

The 1980 Masters was the 44th one played. Seve Ballesteros was the winner in near-runaway fashion.

Winner: Seve Ballesteros, 275

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

Tournament dates: April 10-13, 1980

Leader after first round: Jeff Mitchell, David Graham and Seve Ballesteros, 66

Leader after second round: Seve Ballesteros, 133
