Hole 14 Augusta National

Hole No. 14

Chinese Fir - Par 4.

Historical Average: 4.18 (8) Low Year: 3.936 (2011) High Year: 4.413 (1949)

The primary defense on this bunkerless par four is a terraced putting surface that drops significantly from left to right. Following a well-placed drive, the second shot will usually be a middle-iron. A fairway bunker that once sat to the right of the landing area was removed after the 1952 Masters, making this the only hole at Augusta National that does not have a single bunker.1

 

Hole 14 Masters

Masters highlight: Phil Mickelson holed out for eagle during an eagle-eagle-birdie stretch on Saturday in 2010 that helped him get into the final group. He won his third green jacket the next day.

 

Masters lowlight: Fred Couples had a 4-foot birdie putt to pull within one shot of Mickelson in the final round of 2006. He three-putted for a bogey and tied for third2
