1940 — Jimmy Demaret wins the Masters with a four-stroke triumph over Lloyd Mangrum. Mangrum shoots an opening-round 64, a course record by two strokes, which stands for 46 years. Demaret parred the first 14 holes, added a two-putt birdie at the 15th, then parred the final three holes to sew up his victory. Mangrum could do no better than 74 and finished second.
