2016 Masters first round hole locations, pin placements



The 2016 Masters kicks off on Thursday with a weather forecast predicting temperatures reaching the 70s with a steadily increasing wind, including gusts of more than 35 mph in the afternoon. That weather will impact how Augusta National plays and how the 89-player field will approach the course. So, too, will the hole locations (pin placements) as selected by the Masters Tournament Committee.

Some things to note:



  • The hole location on the par-5 2nd is fairly easy, especially running up the neck with a second shot
  • The pin on the par-3 4th will become increasingly difficult to reach as the wind picks up in the afternoon
  • The hole location on the 5th will be hard to reach, but should be easy to get to on the 6th
  • On the 9th, the cup is in a precarious place, that could lead to a lot of 3-putts
  • For the 11th and 12th holes, the hole locations are pretty generous
  • The locations at the par-5 13th and 15th holes are treacherous, inviting 3-putts and bad misses
