Hole Guide:

This hole is famous for Tiger Woods’ chip in 2005 that paused on the hole edge before sinking. It is played entirely over water and the green is secured by three bunkers - two on the right and one on the left.

The green is another Augusta special. It slopes severely from right to left and produces some incredible putting lines on the final day. The wind plays a major factor on a fascinating par 3 that always produces drama. In 2005 Trevor Immelman became the last player to record an ace here.
