The 1993 Masters Tournament was the 57th Masters Tournament, held April 8–11 at Augusta National Golf Club. Bernhard Langer won his second Masters championship, four strokes ahead of runner-up Chip Beck.[2][3]

Heavy rains on Friday afternoon caused a delay and the second round was not completed until Saturday morning. Jeff Maggert was the leader in the clubhouse at 137 (−7) while Langer was at six-under after sixteen holes when darkness suspended play.[4] Langer, the 1985 champion, finished that round with pars and then forged a four-shot lead with a 69 in the third round to equal the best round of the day.[5] Tied for second were Beck and Dan Forsman.

On Sunday, Forsman got within one shot of Langer, but found the water twice at the par-3 12th and the quadruple bogey ended his chances.[6][7] Langer was even par for the round through twelve holes, then eagled the par-5 13th. Playing in the final pairing with Langer, Beck trailed by three shots at the par-5 15th, chose to lay up, missed the green, and scrambled for par. Langer made birdie for a comfortable lead, which extended to five strokes after Beck bogeyed 16.[2][3][1][7]

None of the five amateurs made the cut; Justin Leonard was the closest at 149 (+5), two strokes shy.
