The par 3s can make or break a potential Masters champion. Just ask the foursome of contenders who dumped shots into Rae’s Creek on No. 12 last year, clearing a path for Tiger Woods to win his fifth green jacket.
One of the greatest commonalities for a top course is a wide variety of par 3s, and Augusta National excels in this category. Players might hit anything from a wedge on No. 12 to fairway wood on No. 4 if it’s playing into the wind. And the demanding putting surfaces frequently require a precise shot just to set up a two-putt opportunity. Each hole averages an above-par score historically.
In all, there have been 29 holes-in-one during the Masters. Check out who made them at the bottom of each hole description, with details about each hole from Masters.com.
