There is no more pristine, immaculate, iconic 18 holes in golf than those at Augusta, an altar that is as revered as it is idolised. Designed by the legendary Bobby Jones, Augusta is the home to such iconic features as Amen Corner, Rae’s Creek, Butler Cabin, Ike’s Pond and The Big Oak Tree.

There has been just one small modification to the course this year with the tee box on the Par 5 2nd extended 10 metres back and to the left to bring the right fairway bunker into play.

Off the tee, distance is far more important than accuracy. It plays even longer than its yardage book by the way it is cut. The course has been lengthened and narrowed over the last two decades but wayward drives are not always punished with such an established and pristine course.

Performance off the tee though is not nearly as important as iron play. Augusta is a second-shot course where experience and precision are key.

The greens at Augusta are some of the toughest in world golf, fast and hard to read, and performance with the flat stick is important but the toughness really brings the star putters back to the field making it a less important statistical angle. A far more important guide is form around the green with an ability to scramble essential.

The most important statistics to follow on the course are:

  • Scrambling
  • Greens In Regulation
  • Strokes Gained: Approach
  • Proximity
  • Strokes Gained: Tee To Green
  • Par 4 Birdie or Better
  • Putting Average
  • Strokes Gained: Putting
  • Par 5 Performance
  • Bogey Avoidance

Want to learn how to lay bet?


When you place a lay bet, you are betting on something not to happen. Let’s think about the Melbourne Cup again. Remember: there can only be one winner. But what about the others trailing behind them? If you place a lay bet in a “Win” market, you can celebrate if the runner tails off at the back of the field.
