The 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 champions are nothing short of legendary, and we’re here to uncover the story behind every golfer who has won in history.
Charles Coody is best known for his win at The Masters® in 1971. He made his pro debut in 1963, played on the U.S. Ryder Cup team in 1971, and was known as one of the best iron players during his time. Towards the end of his career Coody played on the Senior PGA Tour, which is now referred to as the Champions Tour, and won five times. He played in his final tournament at The Masters® in 2006 just before retiring.
Coody was inducted in to the Texas Sports Hall of Fame in 2000.
The Masters® 1971
Charles Coody won his first and only major at The Masters® 1971, just two strokes ahead of Johnny Miller and Jack Nicklaus. Miller went in to the final round -6 and had a two-shot lead going in to the 14th hole, but could not hold on to the lead. Coody and Nicklaus became co-leaders, until Coody came back from a bogey on the 14th hole with two consecutive birdies and pars on the final two holes to claim the 1971 Green Jacket.
