Jack Nicklaus opened with a 68 and led wire-to-wire to win the fourth of his six Masters titles, three strokes ahead of three runners-up. It was the tenth of 18 major titles as a professional for Nicklaus, who also won the U.S. Open in 1972 and was the runner-up at the Open Championship in Scotland, one stroke behind Lee Trevino.
It was the first Masters played without founder Bobby Jones, who died in December 1971 at age 69. The 1972 Masters was also the debut of 20 year old University of Texas golfer and future two-time champion Ben Crenshaw who was low amateur at 295 (T19).
