2015 Masters second round pin placements

2015 Masters second round pin placements

The second round of the Masters is underway, and the weather forecast has improved tremendously. It appears that the rain expected for much of the day at Augusta National will hold off until right around when play finishes.

That means the course will play a little firmer on Friday, but scoring should still be good throughout the day.

Here's a look at the pin placements (hole locations) for the second round:

Some notes on the pin placements:

No. 1 -- Fairly getable pin placement.

No. 2 -- Tough to control a long second shot to stop there, but there may be an eagle or two today

No. 3 -- That's just nasty.

No. 4 -- Probably the toughest location on this hole, over the bunker.

No. 5 -- That's not an accessible pin, but birdies can be had if a player can get all the way back there.

No. 6 -- Tough to get to that location, but a well-struck shot could lead to a birdie try.

No. 7 -- Coming in with a fade is a must.

No. 8 -- Birdies galore.

No. 9 -- The danger isn't in going long, but sucking it back too far.

No. 10 -- You'll have to play "safe" to the right, but the putt will be like lightning.

No. 11 -- That's where players like to miss, so bailing out leaves a short-side chip.

No. 12 -- It would be foolish to fire for that pin.

No. 13 -- Look for some eagles here today.

No. 14 -- Good spot for some good numbers.

No. 15 -- That's right near the spine of the green, so it's trickier than it looks. Going long is bad.

No. 16 -- Tough to get the ball to stay up there.

No. 17 -- That's going to be a tough shot to hold.

No. 18 -- If the ball lands on the proper front tier, then a birdie can be had.
