1973 Masters Tournament Results

The Masters was played for the 37th time in 1973. Tommy Aaron was the winner, his first and only major championship title.

Winner: Tommy Aaron, 283

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

Tournament dates: April 5-9, 1973

Leader after first round: Tommy Aaron, 68

Leader after second round: Gay Brewer, Bob Dickson, Tommy Aaron and J.C. Snead, 141

Leader after third round: Peter Oosterhuis, 211

Notable Notes: Tommy Aaron fired a final-round 68 to come from four strokes behind and win the tournament, which finished on Monday when Saturday's play was rained out.

Ironically, Aaron's final-round playing partner, Johnny Miller, made a mistake on Aaron's scorecard that could have cost him the tournament had Aaron not caught and corrected the error. Why is that ironic? Because it was Aaron's mistake on Roberto de Vicenzo's scorecard at the 1968 Masters that cost de Vicenzo a chance at the title.
