The 1995 Masters Tournament was the 59th Masters Tournament, held April 6–9 at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia. Ben Crenshaw won his second Masters championship, one stroke ahead of runner-up Davis Love III. It was an emotional victory for Crenshaw as it came just days after the death of his mentor, Harvey Penick. Crenshaw and Tom Kite attended the funeral and Crenshaw did not return to Augusta until Wednesday night.
The 1995 Masters marked the first major championship for Tiger Woods, age 19, who qualified as the 1994 U.S. Amateur champion. He finished the Masters as the leading amateur, tied for 41st place and the only amateur to make the cut. Woods average driving distance was the longest in the tournament.
