1940 Masters Tournament

The 1940 Masters was the seventh time the tournament was played. It was the first Masters win for the champion, who went on to win two more.

Winner: Jimmy Demaret, 280

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

Tournament dates: April 4-7, 1940

Leader after first round: Lloyd Mangrum, 64

Leader after second round: Jimmy Demaret and Lloyd Mangrum, 139

Leader after third round: Jimmy Demaret, 209

Notable Notes: Jimmy Demaret outraced fellow Texans Lloyd Mangrum and Byron Nelson to the finish line, winning by four shots over runner-up Mangrum and five over Nelson. It was the first of Demaret's three Masters wins.

Mangrum made history in the first round, shooting 64 — the first 64 recorded in any of the four professional majors (Masters, US Open, British Open, PGA Championship). But he stumbled with a second-round 75, and shot 74 in the final round.
