The 1984 Masters Tournament was the 48th Masters Tournament, held April 12–15 at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia. Ben Crenshaw won the first of his two major titles, both Masters, two strokes ahead of runner-up Tom Watson, the winner in 1977 and 1981.[2][3]

The leader after 36 holes was Masters rookie Mark Lye at 135 (−9), three strokes ahead of Tom Kite.[4] Play was halted near the end third round due to thunderstorms and the final groups completed it on Sunday morning.[5] After 54 holes, Kite led at 207 (−9) and Lye was a stroke back. Crenshaw was a stroke behind Lye at 209 and shot a final round 68 (−4) to slip on his first green jacket. He won again eleven years later in 1995.

Defending champion Seve Ballesteros was assessed a two-stroke penalty in the second round for grounding his club in a water hazard at the 13th hole and missed the cut by a stroke.[4] He also missed the cut as defending champion in 1981.

Normally scheduled to conclude on the second Sunday of April, this Masters was held a week later, as was 1979.
