    Every year, the best golfers in the world gather in Augusta, Georgia, to play in the tournament founded by legendary player Bobby Jones - on the very course he designed. Jones played in early Masters tournaments, including the first one in 1934, but he didn't win. The first title went to Horton Smith, who won the title a second time two years later.
