Herman Keiser gave the tournament its first major upset when he nipped Ben Hogan by a shot to win the 1946 Masters.

Keiser had led from the outset but 3-putted the final hole for a closing 74. Hogan came to the final hole with a chance to win outright, but he missed his birdie putt from 12 feet.

The ball slipped past about three feet, and when Hogan missed the comeback, Keiser won outright.
