Hole 10 - Camellia

Published:

PAR 4 - 495 YARDS

You’ve got to sling it off the tee and if you don’t get it going right-to-left enough it can be at least three clubs’ difference.

Not sure why, but the fairway on 10 is often wet, so it’s possible to get mud on the ball. I remember Chris DiMarco got a mud ball and it veered off to the right. Don’t be short here and avoid going left where it runs off down into the trees.

Also the bunker on the right is tricky because of the damp, heavy sand. It doesn’t have the same consistency as the others.

BILLY FOSTER REMEMBERS: "With Lee [Westwood] we always discuss things. I’ll tell him what I think it is and generally we’ll be on the same wavelength. At times, if I disagree, I’ll say, ‘I think it’s this because…’ and I’ll have to back it up with facts. If he’s got a different feel for the shot, then he might go with his own instinct, but it’s up to me to convince him. It’s how you put it across to your boss."

PETER ALLISS: "Historically this is the toughest hole at Augusta National. This is another drive into space, requiring a hard hook to gain extra distance. Too far left and the trees prove a problem but too far right and you’ve got a monster second shot. It’s a good idea to just play for the middle of the green and let the ball bounce and spin as it likes to give yourself a chance with a putt."
