Masters Hole-by-Hole

 

No. 4 - Flowering Crab Apple

Yards: 240
Par: 3

This has become a long iron for big hitters, fairway metal for others. A deep bunker protects the right side of the green, with another bunker to the left. Club selection remains crucial because of the deceptive wind. The green slopes to the front. This hole features the only palm tree on the course.

Chad Campbell's take: "Very tough downhill par 3. Bunker short right and left of the green. The green is a little L-shaped with two tiers on the back -- very tough to hit. It's around 230 in, so you're hitting long iron and it's real hard to keep it on the right level. The front right bunker isn't that bad a place to be, except when you have a pin up front and the green slopes away from you. But the left bunker is probably a better place to miss because you have a bit of an uphill shot, giving you a better chance of getting it up and down."

Famous Moment: Jeff Sluman in 1992 is the only player to make a hole-in-one on the longest par 3 at Augusta National.

Hall of Shame: Vijay Singh opened with a 67 in 2006 and birdied two of his first three holes of the second round until hitting 6-iron over the green and into the bushes to make double bogey. He wound up with a 74.
