Masters Hole-by-Hole

 

No. 12 - Golden Bell
Amen Corner

Yards: 155
Par: 3

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.

Lucas 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.
