2017 Masters: Augusta National hole No. 12 flyover

Augusta National No. 12 at a glance

Distance: 155 yards
Par: 3
Historic average: 3.29 (fourth)
Buzz:It’s a testament to Augusta National’s genius that the shortest hole is so hard. It has the smallest green (4,135 square feet), set diagonally to pose a simple problem: If a player hits the correct distance (measured to the center of the green) but tugs it left, the ball misses the green and ends up in the bunkers with an almost impossible up-and-down. Hit the same distance to the right, the ball will miss the green and finish in Rae’s Creek. It’s a green with no support. The hole requires skill and then some, including the luck to catch it right before the wind changes, as it always seems to do here.
