Augusta National No. 10 at a glance
Distance: 495 yards
Historic average: 4.30 (first)
Buzz: The big, sweeping dogleg left drops 105 feet from the tee to the green. The hole doesn’t fully reveal itself until halfway down the fairway. It ultimately offers dramatic theater at the green, which does not take well to low-slung approaches and tends to kick them far left into trouble below. The only remaining untouched bunker bearing Alister MacKenzie’s trademark sculpting sits 100 yards short of the green (it used to protect the original putting surface before the green was moved) and looks great but basically goes untouched all week. The approach shot must come in high and soft, and there’s no chance of a run-up to the perched surface.
