The Masters Golf Tournament®: Past Winners - Tommy Aaron

    shutterstock_87742903-2The Masters Golf 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.

    Tommy Aaron

    Born in Gainesville, Georgia, Tommy Aaron began playing golf at the young age of 12. Even though he didn’t have a golf course in his hometown, he still managed to snag two Georgia amateur titles, proving his skills early on. In 1960, Aaron turned pro and received his first professional win in 1969 at the Canadian Open. In 1980, he was inducted into the Georgia Sports Hall of Fame.

    The Masters®, 1973

    This was the only major championship that Tommy Aaron won but he came in the top 10 at The Masters® four years in a row. Up until this win, Aaron was best known for recording an incorrect score on Roberto DeVicenzo’s scorecard during The Masters® in 1968. The irony in this was that during Aaron’s winning tournament, Johnny Miller recorded a higher score when keeping Aaron’s scorecard. This was his third and final victory on the PGA Tour.
