The toughest three-hole stretch at Augusta National

No. 11 at Augusta National (Rob Schumacher-USA TODAY Sports)

The specifics: Par 4, 505 yards

Historical scoring average: 4.29 (second hardest in relation to par)

Easiest it has played: 4.061 (1995)

Hardest it has played: 4.644 (1956)

2019 scoring average: 4.247 (21 birdies, 197 pars, 78 bogeys, eight double bogeys or worse)

How it plays: Pine trees were added to the right side of the fairway in 2004, eliminating the traditional bailout area that provided a better angle into the green guarded front-left by a pond and back-right by a bunker. Like No. 10, this hole plays downhill, this time 62 feet from tee to green, but downhill doesn’t mean it’s any easier because players face another long approach from an uneven lie even if they manage to hit the fairway.
