Henry Picard had to battle the field and the elements to earn his Masters victory in 1938. Inclement weather pushed the start of the tournament back to Saturday, and 36 holes were played Sunday. Picard, a native of Charleston, S.C., handled the conditions and took a one-stroke lead over four golfers into Monday's final round.

Picard played the front nine in 32 in the final round en route to 70 and a two-shot win over Ralph Guldahl and Harry Cooper.
