Augusta National have lengthened hole 13 by approximately 50 yards.
With recent changes to equipment and swing structures the iconic 13th hole at Augusta National is no longer played the way the original designers intended.
With professional golfers regularly hitting 8 and 9 irons into the green for their second shot Augusta National are lengthening the hole with the intention of it playing, mostly, as a 3-shotter.
This is the second time the hole has been lengthened. In the original design in 1934 it was 480 yards long before being lengthened to 510 yards in 2022.
