Alister MacKenzie offered some advice for his design of what has served as the opening hole at Augusta National since the second playing of the Masters.

The par-4 first, known as “Tea Olive” for the fragrant shrubs planted along the hole, measures 445 yards with a steep slope leading to the landing area and a gaping bunker to the right.
