Augusta National‘s 12th hole is one of the world’s most famous and intimidating par 3s.

At just 155 yards, the hole is completely sheltered by trees meaning that wind plays a huge factor, along with bunkers and Rae’s Creek.

We’ve seen many golfers find Rae’s Creek over the years but Robert Streb managed to avoid it on day one of the 2021 Masters after an unfortunate shank.

The American’s hosel rocket fired off right and came up short of the water.

His ball traveled 143 yards, leaving himself an awkward 61 yard pitch shot.

Streb went on to make bogey.

Streb’s bogey dropped him to two over for the round on a difficult scoring day at Augusta.

The course is playing firm and fast for this week’s tournament, contrasting to November’s soft conditions.

Streb has won twice on the PGA Tour and currently ranks 110th in the world.
