This is among the most famous par 3s in golf, and the
shortest hole at Augusta National. Club selection can range
from a 6-iron to a 9-iron, but it's difficult to gauge the
wind. Rae's Creek is in front of the shallow green, with two
bunkers behind it and one in front.
Glover's take: "Probably the most famous hole at
Augusta. About 150 to the middle of the green from the back
left tee. For pins left, you hit it in the middle. For pins
right, you hit it in the middle. I made a triple there last
year and didn't feel I made one bad shot. It's one of those
holes where you got to commit to the wind, focus on the middle
of the green and make the best swing you can. It's the hardest
150-yard hole in golf, for sure."
Famous Moment: Fred Couples came up short,
only for a blade of grass to hold up his ball on the slope. He
chipped up to save par and wound up winning by one shot.
Hall of Shame: Tom Weiskopf hit 7-iron into
Rae's Creek, then hit four shots with a sand wedge into the
water in the opening round of 1980 to make a 13, the highest
score ever on this hole.
