What is the highest score during the Masters on every hole at Augusta National?

The leaderboard at No. 6 at Augusta National Golf Club.


Every year, many of the best golfers in the world are invited to play in the Masters Tournament at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Ga.

The Masters Tournament -- originally called the Augusta National Invitation Tournament -- has been played every year since 1933 (with the exception of three years for World War II), and the event has created a fascinating history as the only recognized men's major championship played on the same golf course every year.

Inevitably, then, there have been some incredible performances and some catastrophically bad scores. Over the history of the Masters, there have been some high scores on individual holes, and the club has tracked those through history.

We share with you the highest score during the Masters on each hole at Augusta National Golf Club.
