WORLD'S SECOND MASTERS
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST
STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
When was the world's second Masters tournament?
Have you ever heard the phrase
‘the shot heard round the world?’ This saying comes from the 1935 Masters
Tournament, which was the second tournament of its kind in history. The shot
that the saying refers to is the albatross that Gene Sarazen holed at 235 yards
with a 4 wood at the 15th hole, par 5. This shot tied him with Craig Wood, who
was in first place at the time, and forced a 36-hole playoff between the two
players. At the end of the playoff, Gene Sarazen emerged as the winner and Craig
Wood came in second place. Sarazen left the tournament with $1,500 in winnings
while Wood left with $800 for his second place prize.
The 2nd Masters Tournament was held at the Augusta
National Golf Club, where it was held for its first year and is where the
tournament is still played today. It was held from April 4 – April 8, 1935.
