2017 Masters: Augusta National hole No. 8 flyover

Augusta National Hole. No. 8 at a glance

Distance: 570 yards
Par: 5
Historic average: 4.83 (15th)
Buzz: A massive fairway bunker on the right is 320 yards to carry, which steers everyone left. From there, a green that used to be hard to reach in two is accessible for many players, though there’s also a risk-free layup zone short-right. Lovely, asymmetrical mounds around the green deflect shots and make for interesting approaches into a narrow, multi-tiered green. The ground here offers lots of contours but not a lot of serious trouble.
