Masters Countdown: Lowest final round in tournament history
How special is a 64 in your final round at the Masters? Only six men have ever done it.
We are 64 days from the start of the 2014 Masters which means we are the lowest final round in Masters history from the start of the 2014 Masters.
Six golfers have shot 64 in the fourth round of the Masters but only one in victory.
Here's the list:
64 (34-30) -- Maurice Bembridge, 1974
64 (32-32) -- Hale Irwin, 1975
64 (34-30) -- Gary Player, 1978
64 (30-34) -- Greg Norman, 1988
64 (35-29) -- David Toms, 1998
64 (34-30) -- Bo Van Pelt, 2012
The only win was Player in 1978. He had seven (!) birdies in the last 10 holes. Bo Van Pelt is the only golfer this century to do it and it included an ace on No. 16 in 2012. In fact, Van Pelt only made two birdies on that second nine in 2012. He aced No. 16 and eagled No. 13.
The 64 score is only one off the tournament record held by Greg Norman (1996) and Nick Price (1986).
The 29 Toms shot on the second nine in 1998 is the lowest nine holes ever in Masters history (tied with Mark Calcavecchia's second nine in his final round in 1992).
