How Would You Play The 12th at Augusta?
I'm confident. Go for the green!

I'm pragmatic. Lay up then pitch on.

That hole looks scary tough to me. It's a par 3 and most par 3 tee shots freak me out at the moment, even if I was OK with my par 3 tees the water alone is enough to give me the Heebee Jeebees (sp?) but then there's that narrow looking green.

I'd have to lay up then pitch on and putt for par. Sorry, I know that's a bit chicken, but I have to be pragmatic!

I'd most likely play it from the drop zone.

What's the distance?

I laid up on a par three once. It was 190 yards into a 40 mph wind, and there was a ravine to hit over.

I believe that hole is about a 150 yds, so unless there was a strong wind into my face, I 'd go with a 7 iron, then clench my buttcheeks together while hopefully watching it clear the creek. Then probably 3 putt. If it didn't clear, SW from the drop zone and another 3 putt.

That had to have been the worst shot he has hit in a long time. He just dead shanked it. I was stunned when I saw the ball bouncing on the wrong side of the hazard.
