And the shortest hole on the course offers one of golf’s prettiest settings. With its historical average of 3.09—making it the 13th toughest hole—scoring a birdie here will pick up a shot on the field. But, players will need some luck if they’re to overcome this little beauty in two shots. Varying winds play havoc with the approach from the tee. The narrow green rests between three well-placed bunkers with the daunting presence of Rae’s Creek to carry en route to the hole. At the 1980 Masters, Tom Weiskopf scored a 13 at the 12th hole after he dunked five balls into Rae’s Creek.
