Clifford Roberts (Augusta National club chairman) wanted to call the tournament the Masters from the beginning (1934) because the field of players was so strong. Bobby Jones (tournament and club founder) thought this title was too presumptuous and named the tournament the Augusta National Invitational Golf Tournament. However, Clifford Roberts told some of his friends in the press and the tournament was unofficially called the Masters in newspapers. Jones finally relented and in 1939 the name of the tournament was officially changed to the Masters Tournament.
