Round summaries[edit]

First round[edit]

Thursday, April 11, 2002

Davis Love III, the 1997 PGA Championship winner, rolled out to the first round lead with a five-under 67. Sergio García who had little success prior to this year at the Masters, shot a four-under 68 to place him in a tie for second with Ángel Cabrera. 2001 U.S. Open champion, Retief Goosen, shot a three-under 69 to place him in a tie with Phil Mickelson and Pádraig Harrington for fourth. There was a massive eleven-way tie at -2 for seventh after the first round. Most notably in this group was two-time and defending Masters champion, Tiger Woods. This group saw two other Masters champions in Vijay Singh and José María Olazábal. Four others were in red figures at -1 with Greg Norman headlining that group.

Second round[edit]

Saturday, April 13, 2002

Vijay Singh, the 2000 champion, headlined the second round with a dominant, seven-under 65 to bolt up to the top of the leaderboard at −9. The Fijian was not the only impressive player on the day, as four players shot five-under 67s, including Retief Goosen who moved into second at −8 and Ernie Els who moved into third at −7. Three-time Masters champion, Nick Faldo, also was among those who posted a 67. Tiger Woods headlined the five players tied for fourth at −5. Woods shot a three-under 69 to place him four strokes off the lead heading to the weekend. Also in this group was two-time champion José María Olazábal. Phil Mickelson was among the four players tied for ninth at −3. Because of the good deal of low scoring, the cut was set at +3, and Jim Furyk and David Duval headlined the list of notables to fail to make the weekend. Second round play was suspended due to weather and 38 golfers had to complete it Saturday morning.

Third round[edit]

Saturday, April 13, 2002

The defending champion, Tiger Woods, charged to a tie for the lead with a six-under 66 to move to -11. Woods, looking for his seventh major championship, was 6-0 going into the final round of a major championship with at least a share of the lead. South African Retief Goosen shot a three-under 69 to move from second place at the beginning of the day to a tie with Woods for the 54-hole lead. Vijay Singh shot a disappointing par 72 after his 65 in the second round to remain at -9 and in third place all by himself. Phil Mickelson charged up the leaderboard with a four-under 68 into a tie for fourth with Ernie Els and Sergio García. José María Olazábal shot a one-under 71 to move to -6 and sole ownership of seventh place. Two Europeans (Pádraig Harrington, Thomas Bjørn) sat six shots behind the lead in a tie for eighth at -5. Because the second round had to be completed Saturday morning, third round play began with golfers teeing off from the 1st and 10th holes to ensure the round would be completed by night fall.

Final round[edit]

Sunday, April 14, 2002

For the first time since Nick Faldo in 1990, a defending Masters champion successfully defended his title. Tiger Woods captured his third green jacket and seventh overall major championship with a one-under 71 to complete his tournament at -12. This was only the third time in Masters history that a player won back-to-back titles (Jack Nicklaus 1965-66, Faldo 1989-90). Woods set yet another Masters record for the best score by a golfer defending his championship.

Woods was not threatened during the final round as his 54-hole co-leader, Retief Goosen, shot a two-over 74 to fall to -9 and a second-place finish. Phil Mickelson, José María Olazábal, and Pádraig Harrington all shot one-under 71s to finish third, fourth, and tied for fifth respectively. Ernie Els and Vijay Singh spoiled great first and second rounds with scores over par in the final round. Els shot a one-over 73 to tie for fifth, and Singh shot a four-over 76 to finish in seventh. Sergio García had his best Masters finish in eighth place at -4. Overall, the scoring was much more difficult during the final round than it was in the other three rounds. The only score below 70 was by Shigeki Maruyama, who shot a five-under 67 to finish -1 for the tournament and a tie for 14th place.
