Masters Hole-by-Hole

 

No. 6 - Juniper

Yards: 180
Par: 3

An elevated tee to a large green with three tiers, with significant slopes marking the three levels. Getting close to the hole is a challenge. The easiest pin might be front left. The hole has not been changed since 1975.

Chad Campbell's take: "Downhill par 3. Usually a mid-iron -- 5, 6, 7. Back to front sloping green with a tier top right where they usually put pins. It's pretty tough to keep it up there. If you miss and it rolls down left, that's a tough two-putt. For balls on the left, you want to keep it under the hole. If you catch that slope, it will roll to the front. You've got to be real precise with your iron. Front left pins are probably the easiest, but your putt is going to be so fast because it's so hard to keep it short of the hole. In a way it looks like a birdie pin, but not necessarily a birdie."

Famous Moment: Billy Joe Patton made a hole-in-one in the final round in 1954 as he tried to become the first amateur to win the Masters. He finished one shot out of a playoff between Ben Hogan and Sam Snead.

Hall of Shame: Jose Maria Olazabal had two chips roll back to his feet and a third go over the green in the second round of 1991. He took a quadruple-bogey 7 and wound up one shot behind Ian Woosnam.
