Hole 2 Augusta National

Hole No. 2

Pink Dogwood - Par 5

Historical Average: 4.79 (16) Low Year: 4.618 (2015) High Year: 4.996 (1957)

No. 2 is a dogleg left which may be reachable in two. Large, deep greenside bunkers demand special attention on the second shot.

Originally, the green was guarded by a lone bunker on the right. That bunker was reduced in size in 1966, and a left bunker was added in 1946.1

 

Hole 2 the Masters
Hole 2 of Augusta National saw Louis Oosthuizen's albatross in 2012.

 

Masters highlight: Louis Oosthuizen hit a 4-iron from 253 yards in the final round of 2012 that landed on the front of the green and rolled some 90 feet into the cup for the first albatross in Masters history. It took him from a one-shot deficit to a two-shot lead. He went on to lose in a playoff.

 

Masters lowlight: David Duval hit into the ditch to the left, took two penalty shots before he escaped, and made a 10 in 2006.2

 

GLT Golf Shot of Note: Matthew Cooke provides tips for hitting long irons and provides a practice drill to help you replicate Oosthuizen’s 2012 albatross (or, as we like to call it at GLT Golf, Pterodactyl.)
