Tiger Woods wins the 66th Masters
The 2002 Masters Tournament was the 66th Masters Tournament played from April 11-14, 2002 at Augusta National Golf Club.
Tiger Woods won his third Masters and second consecutive Masters with a score of -12 (276).
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.
