1934 yardage: 400, par 4
"A drive that is long and straight ... will be in a favorable position for the second. It is difficult to obtain par figures from any other position."
--- Alister Mackenzie, from the first Masters program
- Fairway bunker adjusted, 2006
- Trees added to left side of fairway, 2006
- Tee moved back 15-20 yards, 2006
- Back of tee reduced 7 yards and scorecard changed to 445 yards, 2009
Did it work?
Players get the message early that the course is no pushover. It will take a blast of more than 300 yards to clear the fairway bunker. Bailing out on the left side is no longer an option with more trees planted in that area.
