1939 Masters Tournament Winner and Scores

The 1939 Masters golf tournament was the sixth edition of the event. One of the first of many back-nine charges in tournament history happened here.

Winner: Ralph Guldahl, 279

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

Tournament dates: March 30-April 2, 1939

Leader after first round: Billy Burke, 69

Leader after second round: Gene Sarazen, 139

Leader after third round: Ralph Guldahl, 210

Notable Notes: Ralph Guldahl shot a final-round 69 to edge Sam Snead — who closed with a 68 — by one stroke. It was a victory two years in the making for Guldahl. In the previous two seasons he had won the U.S. Open both years, but finished second in The Masters both years. Guldahl earned it with a great closing nine of 33.
