Round by round results
First round (Thursday, Friday)
Sixty-eight players were still out on the course when rain suspended the first round, so it had to be completed Friday morning. Chris DiMarco shot a five-under 67 to finish with the first round lead. Vijay Singh and Luke Donald each shot a four-under 68 to finish one stroke behind DiMarco in second. Tiger Woods struggled through much of his round ending at two over par. After the round, Woods was questioned by rules officials for an illegal putting stance on the 14th before getting the all-clear. Billy Casper shot the worst round in Masters history on Thursday, a triple-digit 106 (+34), but the round was unofficial because he withdrew.
|1||Chris DiMarco||United States||67||–5|
|T7||Phil Mickelson||United States||70||–2|
|Ryan Palmer||United States|
|Retief Goosen||South Africa|
|Ryan Moore (a)||United States|
|Chris Riley||United States|
Second round (Friday, Saturday)
Rain suspended much of the day with nearly all the golfers still on the course, so the second round spilled into Saturday. Chris DiMarco posted his second straight five-under 67 to take a four-stroke lead at the halfway point. Thomas Bjørn also shot a 67 to take second place by himself at –6. Tiger Woods recovered from his poor first round with a six-under 66 to put himself in third place.
|1||Chris DiMarco||United States||67-67=134||–10|
|3||Tiger Woods||United States||74-66=140||–4|
|Phil Mickelson||United States||70-72=142|

|T9||Jim Furyk||United States||76-67=143||–1|
|Kirk Triplett||United States||75-68=143|
Third round (Saturday)
Chris DiMarco continued his hot ways shooting three-under before play was suspended due to darkness. His –13 was four strokes better than Tiger Woods who shot five-under through nine holes. Thomas Bjørn stayed in contention by shooting two-under through nine holes to place himself at –8 for the championship.
|1||Chris DiMarco||United States||–13||9|
|2||Tiger Woods||United States||–9||9|
Third round conclusion (Sunday)
Tiger Woods stormed into the lead by birdieing his first four holes and finished his round shooting a 7-under 65. Dating back to play on Saturday, Woods birdied seven straight holes, tying a record by Steve Pate. Chris DiMarco struggled in his morning round, making two double bogeys to finish his third round in 2-over 74. DiMarco's troubles began when his second shot at the 10th went into a bush. He had to take a drop, chipped onto the green and two-putted for the double bogey. That ended a streak of 44 holes without a bogey.

Final round (Sunday)
A thrilling final round came down to a two man duel between Tiger Woods and Chris DiMarco. DiMarco narrowed the three shot lead to one by the 11th with a second birdie in three holes after Woods had dropped a shot at the 10th. The lead stretched back to two when DiMarco bogeyed the 12th at the heart of Amen Corner, but a stunning approach on 14 set up a birdie for DiMarco and cut the gap back to one.
Both players birdied 15 and set up a dramatic and memorable 16th hole. With DiMarco sitting comfortably in the center of the green Woods pulled his tee shot just off the green. Woods made a sensational chip, aiming 20 feet (6 m) to the left of the hole and using the sloping green to run the ball towards the hole. The ball crept towards the cup and appeared to stop on the lip of the hole before toppling in for a dramatic birdie. DiMarco missed his birdie putt and the lead grew back to two with just two to play. Woods pushed his drive on 17 leading to a bogey, cutting the lead to one as they went to the 72nd hole.
Woods approach on 18 ended up in the greenside bunker while DiMarco ended up just short of the green. DiMarco's chip for birdie hits the pin rebounds ten feet away when it could easily have jammed in the hole. Woods hit his chip to 14 feet (4 m), but missed his par putt to win. DiMarco calmly sank a ten foot (3 m) putt to force a playoff.
Retief Goosen had the round of the day, firing a five under 67 which was the only round better than DiMarco's 68.

Cumulative tournament scores, relative to par
Previous sudden-death playoffs (since 1979) began at the 10th hole; this was the first to start at the 18th hole, where Tiger Woods and Chris DiMarco both put their drives in the fairway. Woods knocked his approach to 15 feet (5 m) but DiMarco ended up just short of the green, the same spot he was at the end of regulation. DiMarco knocked his chip to five feet (1.6 m), but Woods buried his birdie putt to win his fourth green jacket and ninth major title. It was the second consecutive major that DiMarco lost in a playoff; he finished tied for second at the 2004 PGA Championship.

"Here it comes ... Oh, my goodness! ... OH, WOW! IN YOUR LIFE, have you seen anything like that?!" - CBS's Verne Lundquist's famous call of Tiger Woods' chip-in on the 16th hole.
""I was just trying to throw the ball up there on the hill and let it feed down there and hopefully have a makeable putt. All of a sudden, it looked really good, and it looked like how could it not go in, and how did it not go in, and all of a sudden it went in." - Tiger Woods on his remarkable chip on 16.
"I went out and shot 68 around here on Sunday, which is a very good round, and 12-under is usually good enough to win. It was just that I was playing against Tiger Woods." - Chris DiMarco on his runner up finish.
"I would let it hurt if I gave it away but I didn't. I really didn't." - Chris DiMarco
"You know I played him as hard as I could down the stretch, birdieing a bunch of holes coming down the back nine and putting it on him really. And since I put that behind me and went out and put a good number on the back nine, I feel very good." - Chris DiMarco on his final round.
"That was a hard-fought week with the rain delays, I didn't get off to the greatest of starts. - Tiger Woods on the long week of golf.
