Masters champions with NC ties

Technically, there are four pro golfers with ties to North Carolina who have won the Masters. As the Triangle Business Journal reported in 2019, 1998 champion Mark O’Meara was born in Goldsboro but his family moved across the country when he was young.

The most prolific golfer of the group, Arnold Palmer, recorded four wins in his illustrious career.

Palmer attended Wake Forest and maintained a strong connection to the university throughout his life.
