CaddyMaster Notes: Augusta National is hallowed ground; there is no other golf course like it in the United States and only Saint Andrews Old Course has more history and familiarity worldwide. We owe this national and worldwide treasure to the grandfather of golf in the United States, Booby Jones. Bobby Jones had a vision and a passion unlike any other other for the game of golf and it's rich tradition. Bobby sought to create a tournament unlike any other, a tournament for the best champions in the world, a tournament for The Masters. But first he needed a venue.
General Tips to play Augusta National Golf Club
Despite its length the recipe for success at Augusta National Golf Club starts and ends with accurate approach shots. With the greens and surrounding contours being the courses primary defense accurate approach shots are a must if one expects to score well here. Caddytips suggest practicing your mid to long iron approach game prior to playing Augusta National Golf Club. Take some shag balls to a hole with water on the approach. Practice on hitting approach shots to the other side of the green away from the water; this will help you learn to avoid hazardous results.
Because the bulk of the greens at Augusta National Golf Club are either elevated or well protected short, the course forces players to hit shots that carry onto the putting surface. With fast firm greens, players that don’t impart much spin on the ball or that hit lower approach shots will struggle to keep the ball below the hole. If this sounds like your game then a strategy of laying up on some of the longer approaches (with the intent of leaving an uphill shot to follow) is a good strategy to consider.
Words can’t explain some of the green complexes players are faced with at Augusta National Golf Club. With huge undulations, steep slopes and fast/firm surfaces players will be faced with some of the most difficult putts in the world at Augusta National Golf Club. In preparation for a round at Augusta National Golf Club a player will want to practice long lag putts as it can often be difficult to get the ball anywhere near the hole on one’s approach shot. A common phrase heard by members at Augusta National Golf Club is “Hit it high and let it die.”
The wind at Augusta National Golf Club is extremely difficult to judge as it swirls amongst the trees that line each hole. By elevating tee boxes and greens Mackenzie assures that the wind will always come into play at Augusta National Golf Club. The 12th Hole is a perfect example; the wind will switch within seconds at this point of the golf course. The world’s best golfers have been fooled by its strength and direction and have it short in the water or long in the bunker. Caddytips recommends practicing some low boring shots that power thru the wind. Also, there is nothing wrong with aiming to the largest spot of the green when challenged by the Augusta National Golf Club winds.
