MASTERS ’19: A hole-by-hole look at Augusta National
AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — A hole-by-hole look at Augusta National, site of the 83rd Masters to be played April 11-14, with famous shots played at each one, the average score and where each hole ranks in difficulty since 1934:
No. 1, 445 yards, par 4 (Tea Olive): This slight dogleg right plays uphill and has a deep bunker requiring a 317-yard carry off the tee. The bunker has a tongue in the left side, so anything that enters the front of the bunker might be blocked by the lip. A bunker is left of the green, which falls off sharply at the back and to the right.
Masters memory: Charl Schwartzel used a 6-iron to pitch a low-running shot from the right mounds across the green and holed the shot for birdie to begin the final round of his 2011 victory.
Average score and rank: 4.24 (6th)
