1957 Masters Winner and Scores

The 1957 Masters was the 21st time the tournament was played. The winner caught and passed Sam Snead in the final round.

Winner: Doug Ford, 283

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

Tournament dates: April 4-7, 1957

Leader after first round: Jack Burke Jr., 71

Leader after second round: Sam Snead, 140

Leader after third round: Sam Snead, 214

Notable Notes: Doug Ford played a great final round of 66 to go from three strokes behind the leader at the start of the day to three strokes in front for the victory. Third-round leader Sam Snead couldn't hold off Ford, shooting six shots worse with a 72.

This was the first Masters Tournament that had a cut following the second round. Ben Hogan, plagued by putting problems, shot 76-75 and was among those who missed the cut.
