PGA: The 10 Biggest Wins (Largest Margins of Victory) in Masters History
Here’s a list a bit different than the 10 best scores in Masters history, but the dude at the top is still the same. Tiger Woods‘ blowout of the field in 1997 – with the best Masters score of all time at -18 – saw him win by 12 shots, the only double-digit margin of victory at Augusta.
In general, though, The Masters is not home to many beatdowns by any stretch. In its 76 years as a golf major (not including 2014), only 13 times has the winner taken the Green Jacket by a margin of four or more.
In fact, the last time someone won by more than four was 17 years ago – yup, Woods in ’97 again.
One of the many reasons every true golfer and golf fan loves the Masters: competition at the top straight into Sunday.
Seve Ballesteros appears twice. How nice.Follow @VinGetz
