1.  Jack Nicklaus has the most career Masters victories with 6 (1963, 1965, 1966, 1972, 1975, 1986) and is the third youngest golfer (23 Years, 3 Months) and the oldest golfer (46 Years, 2 Months) to win the masters.  The Golden Bear also has the most runner-up finishes with 4, the most top 5 finishes with 15 and the most top 10 finishes with 22.

2.  In 1997, Tiger Woods became the youngest champion at 21 years, 3 months, 14 days.  That year Tiger also set the record for lowest winning (72 Holes) score with 270 shots and recorded the largest margin of victory, winning by 12 strokes.

3.  Zach Johnson, who is in the 2015 Masters field, holds the record with Sam Snead (1954) and Jack Burke (19556) for the highest winning score with 289 shots (72 Holes) in 2007.
