Jimmy Demaret wins the 11th Masters Tournament

Demaret won by posting sub-par scores in all four rounds, and he was the first golfer to do that in The Masters.

He finished at 7-under 281, two strokes better than runners-up Nelson and Frank Stranahan.
Stranahan was an amateur. No amateur has ever won The Masters, but three times an amateur has finished second. Stranahan's second-place showing in 1947 was the first of those three occurrences. Stranahan went on to win the 1948 and 1950 British Amateur Championships.

Becoming the first golfer to score four sub-par rounds in the same Masters, Jimmy Demaret joined Horton Smith and Byron Nelson as two-time winners of the Tournament.
