FIRST MASTERS ON THIS DAY IN 1934

The 1934 Masters Tournament was the first Masters Tournament, held March
22–25 at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia. It was officially known
as the "Augusta National Invitation Tournament" for its first five editions, but
informally as the Masters from the start. Horton Smith won the event with a 20-
foot birdie putt at the 17th hole (now the 8th hole), and finished at 284 (−4),
one stroke ahead of runner-up Craig Wood. Horton took home a cool $1500
for winning the tournament.
