Masters Hole-by-Hole


No. 1 - Tea Olive

Yards: 445
Par: 4

This slight dogleg right plays uphill and has a deep bunker requiring a 317-yard carry off the tee. The bunker has a tongue in the left side, so anything that enters the front of the bunker might be blocked by the lip. A bunker is left of the green, which falls off sharply at the back and to the right.

Trevor Immelman's take: "The first hole has become an extremely difficult par 4 over the last couple years. They really stretched the tee back. It's like 285 yards to that right bunker now. So you really need to hit a solid one there to start the tournament. Otherwise, you're going to be on the up-slope and hitting a long iron to a very undulating green, so that's not ideal. So a good drive and an iron shot into the middle of the green isn't going to leave you too far from the hole. So that's probably the ideal way to start the tournament."

Famous Moment: Scott Verplank holed out from the fairway bunker with a 4-iron for eagle in 1987.

Hall of Shame: Olin Browne and Scott Simpson were the first players to make a quadruple bogey -- on the same day in 1998.
