Favorite Hole at Augusta?
Love em all, but #11 “White Dogwood” is my favorite. If I could only play one hole at Augusta, it would be 11.

Tough choice between 12 and 13 for me. I’ve always wanted to try and hit that short par 3 that all the pros struggle with. But that par 5 to follow is legit risk reward.

I like #13 and #15, because they may be the only shot I have at birdies.

The par 5 would be awesome. Spray it into the pine needles on the right, hit it on the green from behind two trees (a la Phil), three...maybe 4 putt. Good par/bogie.

Each hole is incredible.

I really enjoy sitting in the shade at 16 tee and looking at 15 green.

As far as playing, I would love to try 13. So beautiful.

3 putting is very possible on any hole.

The third shot at 15 is off of a downslope to a green that runs away from you.

Even the “easy” holes have challenges.

I do agree that most people would have their best chances at the par 5s. The member tees are about 6400. Tee to green is not the biggest issue. The speed and slopes of the greens really make it tough.

I’ve never played it, but several friends have. Their collective take is if you get on the wrong side of the hole, 3 putts is very good. Putting off the green happens. These are all high single digit guys.

16. So many aces made there over the years. I'd love the chance to try and drop one on that right side, with that Sunday hole location, and see if I could cozy that ball down that slope to the hole.

I've played Amen Corner at Tour 18, in Dallas, several times. Those holes are ridiculously hard even by Tour 18 standards. I can't even imagine how hard they would be by Augusta National standards!

I always tell myself that my butter fade plays perfect for that hole and I would totally have the balls to start it over the water given the chance.

I think 15. It’s dead straight and open off the tee. But that 220 ish yard second shot (or 90 yd 3rd shot off a downhill lie) would be awesome to attempt.

15 by a good bit. 13 would be second place. 16 would be fun, hit a draw and watch it catch the slope. 12 would be up there.

It's tough to pick one, but it'd be one of those.

I played them at Tour 18. Went through there even Par. Bogied 11. That is a legit crazy hard Par-4. Not much to the tee shot, but every fiber in your being tells you to bail out right on the approach. Mid iron to a tiny target. I Parred 12... aimed at the bunker, but pulled it to the left fringe. 2 putted. Pulled off a great drive on 13.. a hook around the left side and had ~ 200 in. Hit a long iron and got on in 2. 2 putted. Mind you, the green speeds at Tour 18 were probably less than 10, which like 5 feet slower than Augusta.

Visually, I think I like 11 best. So pretty with the 12 hole and all the flowers sitting off to the right.
