Description:
The classic risk-reward hole became more challenging with a new tee added in 2002. A slight draw is required to get into position for the second shot to the par-5, but a tributary of the creek catches shots that come up short.

1934 yardage: 480, par 5


Original Intent

"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."
--- Bobby Jones


Significant changes

- Tee moved back 20-25 yards, 2002


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.
