Description:
A slight draw off the tee sets up a chance to reach the par-5 green in two. Bunkers in front of the green often come into play.

1934 yardage: 525, par 5


Original Intent

Although this is the longest hole on the course, a well-hit tee shot will take a good run down the fairway as it slopes over the hill. It was one of our guiding principles in building the Augusta National that even our par 5s should be reachable by two excellent shots."
--- Bobby Jones, in Sports Illustrated, April 6, 1959


Significant changes

- Fairway bunker shifted to right, 1999

- Tee moved back 20-25 yards, 1999


Did it work?

Nothing has changed. Big hitters can still reach this hole in two shots, and anyone who walks away without birdie feels as if he lost a shot to the field.
