What to Watch For
"Crumbs! When they put the pin back-right, like
they do on Thursday and Sunday, watch out! You
need to land your ball on a 3-yard-by-3-yard circle up
on that shelf. If it's short by a foot, it comes back
down off the green. Go left, and you've got a long
putt. But beware the wind. It gets bottled up because
the trees are so tall. You can hit the same shot as your
playing partner, and he's eight feet away and you end
up 100 feet short. It's a laugh of the gods."
"Against Greg [Norman] on Sunday
in '96, I made birdie, which was great
for my confidence. I hit a 6-iron to six
feet behind the hole and made the
putt, and I think that sent a message
to Greg that said, 'I'm in control of
what I'm doing.' That's part of the
psychology of Augusta let the other
guy know that you're on your game."
"Distance control is a must.
There's a tier on the right
side that uses two tricky pin
positions where the landing is no
wider or longer than about 20 feet.
The green slopes severely
from back to front, so anything
long is almost assured a bogey."
