re: Favorite Hole at Augusta?
I really love 2/3 (Pink Dogwood/ Flowering Peach).
But, I'd have to choose #3 as my favorite.

For me, these two holes set the tone for how the round is going to go for each player.
Hole #1 is the toughest hole at Augusta (at least in 2017 based on cumulative statistics), and everyone is dealing with the nerves of the Masters.

Then, #2 gives them a chance to recover/grab a birdie/eagle.

So, #3 is the first real hole that shows what kind of form and mentality the golfer is in. Shortest par 4, but moderately tough.
And I just love the setup.
Beautiful fairway bunker design, challenging but open green, and I think it has the prettiest flowers.

16. the skipping across the water is my favorite and i cant wait to see it. a few years back i watched a buddy drunker than cooter brown skip a ball of a pond on a par 3 up on the green.

it's a hole for the people. maybe the one thing at augusta that isnt super uptight.

re: Favorite Hole at Augusta?
Playing the course on XBOX made me appreciate how difficult I'm sure it is for anyone who has actually played it. That first par-3, I think it's called flowering crab apple, that damn hole is hard as hell on the game. Really long and you have to hit a long iron or hybrid - so if the flag is behind the bunker you have no chance of getting it within 20 feet.

But overall I think 15 is my favorite. With how narrow the green is and with water right in front, off of a down hill lie, think it would be fun to give it a shot.

#12, 13, and 16 are all great for drama.
