Nelson's 1942 win came in a memorable playoff with his childhood friend and caddy mate, Ben Hogan. After two rounds, Nelson had a 10 stroke lead over Hogan. Hogan caught Nelson, shooting 67-70 in the final two rounds to force the playoff. Hogan jumped to an early 3 stroke lead in the playoff, but Nelson battled back, shooting 69-70 to beat Hogan and secure his second Masters title.
