In strong winds and cool temperatures on the final two days, Sam Snead held on to the lead and won the second of his three Masters titles, four strokes ahead of runner-up Jack Burke, Jr..[1] It was the sixth of Snead's seven major titles.

Defending champion Ben Hogan hosted the first Masters Club dinner (popularly known as the Champions dinner). He was the co-leader with Snead after three rounds at 214 (−2),[2] but shot a 79 (+7) on Sunday and finished seven strokes back.
