Description:
The start of Amen Corner is the most difficult hole in recent years because of its added length. A slight fade off the tee is necessary to reach the fairway. The greenside pond is more of a factor, because players have longer shots into the green.

1934 yardage: 400, par 4


Original Intent

"The second shot is usually played with a 3-iron or a stronger club, and a player must be bold indeed to go for the pin when it is in this location (left-hand side). ... a great many players play this hole safely to the right, relying on getting a long putt or chip dead for the par."
--- Bobby Jones


Significant changes

- Tee relocated and pond left of green built, 1950

- Green, pond and bunker complex adjusted, 1999

- Tee moved back 10-15 yards, 2006

- Trees added to right side of fairway, 2004 and 2006

- Dogwoods added to wooded area on left, 2006

- Fairway shifted to left, 2006

- Several trees removed on right side of fairway and fairway widened, 2008


Did it work?

The only par-4 at Augusta National to measure more than 500 yards, a clout of 265 yards is necessary to reach the fairway. Birdies are hard to come by.
