The jacket was given to Horton Smith, who won the tournament again in 1936.
The Augusta Chronicle reports that the jacket sold at an auction Sunday for $682,229.45.
The jacket was sold by Green Jacket Auctions of Denville, N.J. The winning bidder was not identified.
Smith’s jacket, a 43 long, was presumed to be lost, but last month the auction house was contacted by one of Smith’s relatives. The green jacket had been hanging in a closet for decades.
