2014 Masters: Traditional final round course setup in store for Sunday

Rob Carr

It's Sunday at the Masters, which means you may be able to guess where many of the pins are located. That's mostly the case this year with a couple minor tweaks.

Not much changes at the Masters from year-to-year and that includes the pin placements on Sunday. Course officials rarely detour far from the traditional final round setup and that is once again the case this year. There are a couple of minor tweaks, but for the most part, players with experience will be very familiar with the setup on Sunday.

The focus, as always at Augusta, is on the back nine. Once again, the course is setup with classic pin locations at No. 12, 13 and 18. The most notable difference on the back nine come at No. 11, 15 and 17. The 11th pin is front-left on Sunday, slightly more forward than it usually is. The pin is traditionally tucked in the back-left, but the new location still isn't a very good pin to attack. The 15th pin is usually back-right, but is back-middle this year. The hole won't play much different as the pin is still on the top slope of the back of the green. No. 15 has been and still is one of the best holes to attack on Sunday. The change at No. 17 is a little more noticeable: the traditional back-right placement has been replaced by a front-right pin. The new pin location will be far from easy, but is likely more manageable than back-right would have been.

Golf Channel analyst Chris DiMarco has plenty of experience on the Augusta National greens and the 2005 runner-up graded the back-nine pin locations. The holes marked in green are the best to attack. Players have to play the yellow holes with caution and red holes you're just happy to get out with a par.
