1937 Masters Tournament Winner and Scores

In 1937, The Masters Tournament was played for the fourth time. One of golf's legends earned his (future) Augusta National bridge this year.

Winner: Byron Nelson, 283

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

Tournament dates: April 1-4, 1937

Leader after first round: Byron Nelson, 66

Leader after second round: Byron Nelson, 138

Leader after third round: Ralph Guldahl, 209

Notable Notes: You probably know that there is a bridge at Augusta National dedicated to Byron Nelson, the Nelson Bridge on the 13th hole. It carries Nelson's name because of what happened at the 1937 Masters. Nelson trailed Ralph Guldahl going to the 12th hole, but outplayed Guldahl by five strokes on Nos. 12 and 13, turning the tournament around.
