Augusta National Hole. No. 9 at a glance
Distance: 460 yards
Historic average: 4.15 (12th)
Buzz: It’s all about the notoriously sloped green, with three tiers waiting well above the player in the approach zone. Judging distance and pulling it off so that the ball finishes on the same level as the hole is demanding, and balls frequently spin back off the front of the green and well down the fairway. Putting from one tier to another is no gimme, either.
