The Eisenhower Tree to the left of the fairway is prominent
at 210 yards from the tee, requiring another accurate tee shot.
The green is protected by two bunkers in the front.
Beem's take: "Big Eisenhower tree on the
lefthand side, and with the addition of trees on the righthand
side, it's just a long, straight uphill drive. As soon as the
ball lands in the fairway, it stops. You get no roll. I don't
even think the big hitters can get it far enough up that hill
where they can land it on the flat and get some roll. The
second is another uphill shot, usually with a mid iron. Huge
bunker in the front of the green and another left. The green
is in two sections. The left is long and flat. The right is a
halfpipe-looking contour where the front part slopes away from
you over the bunker, but it rises up again and falls back in
some spots. Extremely difficult shot when the pin is right.
Left placements you got more room. On the right you really
have to watch your distance control. Over the green right,
you're going to make 5 at best."
Famous Moment: Jack Nicklaus holed a 12-foot
putt, his final birdie in a back-nine 30 when he won the Masters
in 1986. Nicklaus raised the putter in his left hand as it fell,
which became his signature pose.
Hall of Shame: Stuart Appleby had a four-shot
lead late in the third round of 2007 when he hit his tee shot so
far left it went into a bunker on the seventh green. He hit into
another bunker on the 17th, and three-putted for a triple
