#MastersMonday – Henry Picard 1938

    By Kristen Doolan

    The Masters Tournament® has a long-lived legacy as one of golf’s most prestigious tournaments. Starting back in 1934 and progressing on today, Augusta National® has seen many champions walk onto its course.

    These Green Jacket Champions are nothing short of legendary and as we count down to The Masters 2018, we will uncover the story behind them all.

    Henry Picard – 1938

    Henry Picard found and developed his love for the sport of golf in his early years while he was caddying at Plymouth Country Club. The Massachusetts native was an extremely talented golfer and a leading player on the PGA Tour in the 1930s and 40s. He went on to win two major championships, 1938 Masters Tournament® and the 1939 PGA Championship, as well as play on both the 1935 and 1937 Ryder Cup teams.

    1938

    The Masters® in 1938 started with harsh weather conditions, delaying the first round until Saturday, rounds 2 and 3 on Sunday, and the final round Monday. Picard led by one stroke after 54 holes and maintained the lead through Monday evening, warding off stiff competition by both Harry Cooper and Ralph Guldahl. As the 5th Masters Tournament®, the purse held $5,000, Picard claiming a share of $1,500 and a priceless, historic, victory.

    After claiming numerous victories in the PGA Tour, Picard went on to have a successful life coaching and residing as the head professional at several country clubs. He retired in 1973, passed away in 1997 and then was later inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 2006.
