The 2016 Masters resumes on Friday with a weather forecast predicting temperatures reaching the mid-60s 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.
2016 Masters second round pin placements
Some things to note:
- The hole locations on Nos. 2 and 3 are difficult compared to their relatively easy Thursday positions
- The pin on No. 4 is going to be nasty with the wind expected
- Don’t expect many players to take on the hole locations on Nos. 11 and 12, unlike their generous spots on Thursday
- The hole location on 16 is the second hardest on that green
