The Masters: Six appeal 0 Previous Gallery Next Gallery 1 / 8 email@example.com The Masters tournaments that end in the year 6 seem to always provide some of the biggest drama in the event's history. A quick look at seven amazing finishes: 2 / 8 1946: In the first year of the tourney back after the war, both Ben Hogan and Herman Keiser (above) three-putted the final hole and Keiser won by a stroke. 3 / 8 1956: In one of the saddest moments in Masters history, Ken Venturi, poised for a miraculous victory as an amateur, shot 80 in the final round and Jack Burke Jr. (above) rallied from eight shots back to win by a shot over Venturi. 4 / 8 1966: Jack Nicklaus won the third of his six Green Jackets in an 18-hole playoff against Tommy Jacobs and Gay Brewer. Only two players broke 70 in a round: Nicklaus with a 68 in round one and Paul Harney with a 68 in round two. 5 / 8 Bill Mahan 1976: Raymond Floyd won wire-to-wire by tying a then-record 17-under par mark held by Nicklaus.
