Augusta National Scorecard For The 2022 Masters
One of the reasons the Masters is so special is because it's the only major that's played at the same venue each year.
At any other course this might get a little tedious, but there's nothing better than reacquainting yourself every 12 months with Augusta National, home of some of the most famous holes in world golf. While it looks different to when it was first designed by Bobby Jones and Alister MacKenzie, in the last decade, the enforced removal of the Eisenhower Tree in 2014, and the lengthening of the 5th, 11th and 15th holes are notable changes of late. So, here is the scorecard at its full yardage for the 2022 Masters:
- Hole 1: Tea Olive, par 4, 445 yards
- Hole 2: Pink Dogwood, par 5, 575 yards
- Hole 3: Flowering Peach, par 4, 350 yards
- Hole 4: Flowering Crab Apple, par 3, 240 yards
- Hole 5: Magnolia, par 4, 495 yards
- Hole 6: Juniper, par 3, 180 yards
- Hole 7: Pampas, par 4, 450 yards
- Hole 8: Yellow Jasmine, par 5, 570 yards
- Hole 9: Carolina Cherry, par 4, 460 yards
- Hole 10: Camellia, par 4, 495 yards
- Hole 11: White Dogwood, par 4, 520 yards
- Hole 12: Golden Bell, par 3, 155 yards
- Hole 13: Azalea, par 5, 510 yards
- Hole 14: Chinese Fir, par 4, 440 yards
- Hole 15: Firethorn, par 5, 550 yards
- Hole 16: Redbud, par 3, 170 yards
- Hole 17: Nandina, par 4, 440 yards
- Hole 18: Holly, par 4, 465 yards
After the disrupted 2020 tournament, things returned to normal in 2021 with Hideki Matsuyama emerging victorious. As usual, with the April slot in the calendar we can expect the course to play firm and fast, as is customary.
And based on stats that stretch all the way back to 1942, here is a table of how you can expect each hole to play during the week.
As you can see, that three-hole stretch after the turn has the potential to wreak havoc. Rory McIlroy came unstuck at the 10th in 2011, carding a triple-bogey 7 that was the catalyst for his collapse, while Jordan Spieth made a quadruple-bogey 7 on the 12th in 2016 that handed the win to Danny Willett. 12 has also seen a number of other water disasters as well, including the 2019 tournament in which Tiger Woods kept his ball dry whilst his closest competitors did not. The 11th is also a very tricky hole to navigate so clearly, come Sunday, the players who navigate that tough stretch will have the best chance at victory.
A golfer for most of his life, Sam started playing the game to prove he was the best player out of his father and two brothers.
He quickly became a golf equipment expert and has always been the one family and friends come to for buying advice, and spends a lot of his time putting golf gear, apparel and shoes to the test.
He is a graduate of Swansea University where he studied History and American Studies, and he has been a part of the Golf Monthly team since February 2018. He also previously worked for World Soccer and Rugby World magazines.
A jack of all trades across print and digital formats, Sam now spends most of his time testing and looking after golf gear content for the website. He also oversees all Tour player content as well.
Unfortunately, Sam is not a member of any club at the moment but regularly gets out on the golf course to keep up the facade of having a handicap of five.
Sam is currently playing:
Driver: Titleist TS3
Fairway Wood: TaylorMade M5 (15 degrees), Nike Covert Tour 2.0 (19 degrees)
Irons (4-PW): Titleist AP2
Wedges: Titleist Vokey SM7 54˚, 58˚
Putter: Scotty Cameron Circa 62 #6
