1949 Masters Tournament Results

The 1949 Masters was the 13th time the tournament was played, and one of the tournament's three-time champs got win No. 1 here.

Winner: Sam Snead, 282

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

Tournament dates: April 7-10, 1949

Leader after first round: Lloyd Mangrum, 69

Leader after second round: Herman Keiser and Lloyd Mangrum, 143

Leader after third round: Johnny Palmer, 214

Notable Notes: Sam Snead had a great weekend at Augusta National in 1949: He carded consecutive 67s in the third and fourth rounds. That was enough to take the victory by three strokes over Johnny Bulla (who himself had back-to-back 69s in the last two rounds). This was the first of Snead's three wins at The Masters. Snead also was the first Masters winner presented with the Green Jacket.
