The first Masters was contested in 1934 and was won by Horton Smith of the United States with a score of -4. Smith also won the Masters in 1936.

(Smith did win the Masters Golf Tournament, but the First Green Jacket <the symbol of a Masters champion, was awarded to Sam Snead, in 1949.) The kelly-green jacket was first worn by Augusta National Club Members in 1937. The color was chosen so patrons could identify members if they had questions about the tournament.
