2015 Masters first round pin placements

2015 Masters first round pin placements

The Masters is underway, and the field of 97 will face some very difficult hole locations on Day 1 at Augusta National Golf Club.

Take a look at Thursday's pin placements:

Some notes on the pin placements:

No. 1 -- My God, that's the toughest on that green.

No. 2 -- There's almost no chance for an eagle unless someone holes it for their third shot.

No. 3 -- There will be plenty of three-putts and a few four-putts.

No. 4 -- That's probably the easiest placement on this hole.

No. 5 -- That's precarious on a green that has some much movement on it.

No. 6 -- Birdies can be made on that ridge, but a miss means a tough two-putt.

No. 7 -- Don't. Go. Long.

No. 8 -- That's a get-able position, either up the gut or with a slight fade.

No. 9 -- If a player goes long, they'll regret it. If they spin their approach too much, they'll regret it.

No. 10 -- Almost impossible to get close there. Par is a great score.

No. 11 -- Don't even bother hitting the green. Miss to the right to get up-and-down for par.

No. 12 -- Not a bad spot.

No. 13 -- An aggressive second shot calls for a fade from a huge hook lie. Yikes.

No. 14 -- That's tight to the edge, but fortunately, there's no greenside bunkering, just a nasty fall-off.

No. 15 -- Miss short or left and birdie is most certainly out of play.

No. 16 -- The Tiger pin!

No. 17 -- There's a chance for a hole out on this location, but have to play to the center of the green and run it over.

No. 18 -- Don't go long, play the shot in low.
