The 1936 Masters Tournament was the third Masters Tournament, held April 3–6 at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia.


Horton Smith won his second Masters, one stroke ahead of runner-up Harry Cooper, with defending champion Gene Sarazen in third. Still officially named the "Augusta National Invitation Tournament," the purse was $5,000 with a winner's share of $1,500.

Due to heavy rains, the first round of play was postponed until Friday. Sunday's play was also postponed and the third and fourth rounds were played on Monday. On the back nine of the final round, Smith chipped in for birdie from 50 feet (15 m) at the 14th hole, birdied the next hole, then parred out to win again.

Cooper led after each of the first three rounds in an attempt to become the first wire-to-wire winner at the Masters; that occurred at the 1941 edition, won by Craig Wood. After three rounds under par, Cooper shot 76 (+4) in the final round on Monday afternoon, with his bogey on the 17th hole proving decisive.
