Sitting at 240 yards, you could make an argument that the par-3 4th hole at Augusta National is the toughest par 3 on the course. After all, it was part of the original "Amen Corner" before the front and back nines were flipped in 1935 (and before the nickname Amen Corner existed). 

But don't tell that to the guys on the course this morning. After William McGirt found the bottom of the cup from the sand in the first group to play the hole today, Australian Rod Pampling followed suit chipping in from just short of the front bunker.

Unfortunately, for Pampling, that was the lone bright spot of the morning as he went out in 39 and started the back nine with a bogey to sit at +6 for the tournament.
