The 1936 Masters Tournament was the third Masters Tournament, held April 3–6 at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia. Horton Smith won his second Masters, one stroke ahead of runner-up Harry Cooper, with defending champion Gene Sarazen in third. Still officially named the "Augusta National Invitation Tournament," the purse was $5,000 with a winner's share of $1,500.

Due to heavy rains, the first round of play was postponed until Friday.[2] Sunday's play was also postponed and the third and fourth rounds were played on Monday. On the back nine of the final round, Smith sank a 50-foot (15 m) chip-in for birdie at the 14th hole, and a follow-up birdie at the 15th hole to win again.[3]
