Masters 2018: The toughest holes for Tiger Woods at Augusta

Tiger Woods has finished in the Top 10 of the Masters 13 times in the 20 years that he has played, but even he hasn’t come close to mastering Augusta.

Heading into the 2018 tournament, Tiger is a combined +17 on the Par-3 fourth hole at Augusta, making that his single worst hole on the course.

In the 78 rounds he’s played, Tiger has only birdied No. 4 seven times. He’s shot par 48 times, bogeyed 22 times, and carded a double bogey once.

In the four years where Tiger won the Masters, his performance on No. 4 has been much better than usual. Those years, Tiger averaged 3 strokes on the fourth, as opposed to a lifetime average of 3.22 strokes:

Year Score
CAREER 3.22
1997 3.25
2001 2.75
2002 3
2005 3

On the flip side, The Par-5 13th is Tiger’s best hole at Augusta: He’s a combined 48 strokes under par there, thanks to nabbing four eagles and 46 birdies, and only going over par five times.
