2016 Masters third round hole locations, pin placements


The 2016 Masters has reached Moving Day on Saturday for the third round. However, with wind gusts expected to peak around 35 mph, it's hard to imagine a whole lot of moving forward. Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroy are paired in the final group for the first time on the weekend in a major, and here's a look at the pin placements they and the rest of the 57-player field will face.

2016 Masters Round 3 pin placements


Some things to note:

  • The par 5s have pretty difficult hole locations, including No. 2, at the spine of the green.
  • The pin on the short par-4 3rd is nasty tough.
  • The pin on the par-3 6th will be tough to reach, but the players could use the slope in on the right of the green to sling it closer.
  • It might make sense for a player to start their tee shot at the the pin on 12 and drift to the back-right of the putting surface.
