1934 yardage: 480, par 5
"Whatever position may be reached with the tee shot, the second shot as well entails a momentous decision whether or not to try for the green. Several tournaments have been won or lost here, even though the decision may not have been obvious at the time."

Did it work?
Moving the tee back made the challenge of reaching the green in two a tad more difficult. Although it is historically the next-to-easiest hole on the course, it is a classic risk-reward hole. Many Masters challengers have seen their chances of winning drown in the tributary of Rae's Creek that skirts the green.
