Hole 6 at Augusta

The sixth is the second short hole. They play from a high tee down to a raised green with bunkers all around. It is very sloped and has an electric speed to it.

It is a strange one. The spectators sit beneath the tee because they can also see the 16th green from there.

You cannot see them from the tee but when you walk down you realise you have hit your ball just over the heads of thousands of people.

2010 rank: 10th hardest (stroke ave. 3.135)

All-time rank (1942-2010): 13th (3.14)
