Arnold Palmer becomes the first to win four green jackets, beating out Dave Marr and defending champion Jack Nicklaus by six strokes with a 12-under-par 276. It is the third time in five years that Palmer, arguably the most popular player on the tour, wins the Masters, bringing his total major titles to seven, which ranked third. It would be the final major title of his career.
