Who Won The Masters® in the Last 18-Hole Playoff in Tournament History?

    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.

    Billy Casper

    Casper’s passion for golf began when he was a caddie in San Diego, a place where golf could be played year-round. Between the years of 1956 and 1975 he was ranked seventh all-time in PGA Tour wins, ending his career with 51 total. Casper represented the U.S. in the Ryder Cup eight times, which broke the record at the time, he also holds the current record for Ryder Cup points won. 

    Once his playing career was over, he moved to the business side of things with golf course design and management of golf facilities. Casper was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 1978!

    The Masters®, 1970

    Billy Casper defeated opponent and friend Gene Littler in an 18-hole Monday playoff, achieving his third major championship. It was the last 18-hole playoff at The Masters® before the format was changed to sudden death in 1976, and was first used in 1979. Casper shot a 71 during the final round to force a playoff with Littler who shot a 70 to tie it at -9.
