1982 Masters


Craig Stadler won the 1982 Masters, the 46th edition of the tournament, beating Dan Pohl in a playoff for the Green Jacket.

Winner: Craig Stadler, 284

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

Tournament dates: April 8-11, 1982

Leader after first round: Jack Nicklaus, 69

Leader after second round: Curtis Strange and Craig Stadler, 144

Leader after third round: Craig Stadler, 211

Notable Notes: A playoff between two younger players, one nicknamed "The Walrus" and the other a long-bomber of his day, settled the outcome here. And after the playoff, it was the Walrus - Craig Stadler - who beat the bomber, Dan Pohl.

Jack Nicklaus led by three after the first round, but stumbled with a second-round 77. Stadler shared the second-round lead and had the outright lead following the third round. Stadler led by six with seven holes to go, but faltered down the stretch, including a 3-putt bogey on the last. That let Pohl make up all the ground to tie. But Stadler won it on the first playoff hole with a par.
