The leader after 36 holes was Masters rookie Mark Lye at 135 (−9), three strokes ahead of Tom Kite.[4] Play was halted near the end of the third round due to thunderstorms and the final groups completed it on Sunday morning.[5] After 54 holes, Kite led at 207 (−9) and Lye was a stroke back. Crenshaw was two strokes back at 209 and shot a final round 68 (−4) to slip on his first green jacket. He won again eleven years later in 1995.

Defending champion Seve Ballesteros was assessed a two-stroke penalty in the second round for grounding his club within the confines of a water hazard at the 13th hole and missed the cut by a stroke.[4] He also missed the cut as defending champion in 1981.

Normally scheduled to conclude on the second Sunday of April, this Masters was held a week later, as was 1979.
