Timeline: Notable Masters through the years

Seventy-five years ago, the Masters christened the name it would boast for decades to come as smooth-swinging Ralph Guldahl brought home the win.

Take a look in our timeline below, where you can click on the “75 years go,” “50 years ago,” etc. to get the nugget on that particular year. Enjoy!
