With its near-azure water traps, ivory bunkers and its immaculate fairways and greens, Augusta National is one of the most iconic golf courses in the world.

Every April, the eyes of the sporting world turn to this little pocket of paradise in Georgia, USA, with the best golfers on the planet fighting it out for the annual Masters.

For each year's winner, a lifetime invitation to return is on offer, as well as the snappy green jacket, of course.

However, which of these golfers has the lowest final-round score in Masters history?

Entering the 2024 tournament, the record is held by eight different golfers, with each posting scores of 64 on Sunday between 1974 and 2022.

Yet, only one member of this group - Gary Player in 1978 - would go on to take out the green jacket, proving that a fast finish isn't worth much without an en fuego start.
