Hole 13 at Augusta National Golf Club is a 510-yard par 5, dogleg left. It plays slightly downhill from the championship tees and has an approximate fairway width of 46 yards. The green area measures 11515 square feet with 1% greenside bunkers. This hole presents a challenge to golfers of all levels due to its length and slight dogleg shape, though it offers birdie opportunities for players who can navigate the tee shot effectively.

In summer months, temperatures in Augusta are hot and humid which can cause the ball to travel further than expected off the tee due to increased air density; however, this also means that approach shots may require more club selection as they tend to fly lower into the wind. In winter months, cooler temperatures mean less air density but increased wind speeds which will affect both your tee shot and your approach shot accuracy.

For most average golfers looking to make par or better on this hole, we recommend hitting driver off the tee followed by a 7 iron or hybrid for your second shot depending on distance remaining into the green (140 yards max). If you find yourself within 120 yards of the pin after your second shot then you should consider using a pitching wedge for optimal accuracy around these relatively small greenside bunkers.

Club Recommendations

For the tee shot, aim to hit your driver towards the left side of the fairway. This will give you a better angle into the green and leave you with a shorter second shot. Avoid hitting too far down the right side as this will leave you with an awkward angle for your approach shot due to trees on that side.

Finally, be mindful of wind direction when selecting clubs for both shots; if there is a headwind then use one more club than usual while if there is a tailwind use one less club than normal.
