In 1956, Jack Burke Jr. made history. He came from eight shots back in the final round to defeat amateur Ken Venturi by a shot, setting the record for largest comeback at the Masters.

In 1996, Nick Faldo rallied from a six-shot deficit to Greg Norman entering the final day to win his third green jacket.
