Ben Hogan shattered the Masters scoring record by five strokes with a 274 (−14), which stood for 12 years, until Jack Nicklaus' 271 in 1965. Hogan shot four rounds of 70 or better, and went on to win the U.S. Open by six strokes in June and the British Open by four in July. Through 2015, it remains the only time these three majors were won in the same calendar year.

Hogan finished five strokes ahead of runner-up Ed Oliver to win his second Masters, the seventh of his nine major titles. This win was commemorated five years later in 1958 with the dedication of the Hogan Bridge over Rae's Creek at the par-3 12th hole.
