Masters Hole-by-Hole

 

No. 5 - Magnolia

Yards: 455
Par: 4

New tee box this year offers an option to play slightly shorter. An uphill, slight dogleg to the left with two very deep bunkers guarding the left side some 300 yards from the tee. The green slopes severely from back to front, and a small bunker catches anything long. If an approach is long and misses the bunker, it could roll down the slope and into the trees.

Chad Campbell's take: "No. 5 is an uphill tee shot, little bit of a dogleg left around bunkers. The bunkers are dead so you don't want to hit it there. The tee shot is tough, a little awkward, especially for me. Most hit driver or 3 wood and then you have anywhere from 4 to 7 iron into a green that's probably the toughest on the course. The first 10-12 steps are a false front, but you don't pay attention to that because you have to fly it up top. And then it slopes away from you, so you need to stop it. All pins on the left are tough. The bunker back left is really not that bad a place to be."

Famous Moment: Jack Nicklaus holed out from the fairway for eagle in 1995 -- in the first round and in the third round.

Hall of Shame: Defending champion Cary Middlecoff had a four-putt double bogey in the final round in 1956 and wound up with a 77 to finish two shots behind Jack Burke Jr.
