The 1958 Masters Tournament was the 22nd Masters Tournament, held April 3–6 at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia. Arnold Palmer won the first of his four Masters titles, one stroke ahead of runners-up Doug Ford and Fred Hawkins. It was the first of Palmer's seven major titles.

Palmer was the third round co-leader and eagled the 13th hole on Sunday to propel him to victory, as he three-putted on the final green.[1][2] Three-time champion Sam Snead was the other co-leader after 54 holes, but shot a 79 (+7) on Sunday to fall to 13th place. One stroke back was 1955 champion Cary Middlecoff, who carded a 75 in the final round and tied for 6th.

Sports Illustrated writer Herbert Warren Wind first used the term "Amen Corner" in a story to describe where the critical final day's action had occurred.[3]
