Hole No. 10

Camellia - Par 4

Historical Average: 4.31 (1) Low Year: 4.121 (1995) High Year: 4.691 (1956)

This long par four plays steeply downhill and features a nearly 60-yard-long center bunker well short of the green. Players will try to drive the ball to the left center for the best angle into a green that pitches right to left. Until 1935, this was the first hole. It is traditionally the most difficult hole on the course. Originally, the 10th green was positioned to the right of the huge fairway bunker. In 1937, the putting surface was moved to the rise beyond the bunker, making the hole extremely demanding.1

Bubba Watson's 40 yard hook in 2012 helped him win his first Green Jacket.

Masters highlight: Bubba Watson was deep in the trees to the right of the fairway, 155 yards away, when he played a 40-yard hook with a wedge that landed about 10 feet beneath the hole. He two-putted for par to win the 2012 Masters.

Masters lowlight: Scott Hoch had a 3-foot putt to win the Masters in a playoff in 1989. He missed, and lost to Nick Faldo on the next hole.2

GLT Golf’s Shot of Note: Arick Zeigel recreates Bubba Watson’s 2012 hook while providing advice on how to adapt and never make the same shot twice.
