The Masters 2020 | 25 Key Stats

It’s the best week of the year as the best in the world head to our hometown for The Masters at Augusta National Golf Club just minutes from where the Tour Junkies grew up. We love this place, and even though COVID has f’ed up 2020, we’re still excited to take it all in. We all know how Augusta sets up…in APRIL! But, what the hell do we do with it in November?

We interviewed Augusta native and Masters veteran, Charles Howell III, on both our DFS and Betting preview podcast to discuss how ANGC will play this week. Check it out wherever you listen to podcasts, or on your YouTube channel or right HERE on the TJ site. Charles gave invaluable insight into the course and expected conditions.

14Every Masters champion since 2009 has scored a cumulative total of 1 over or better on the par 3’s

15. Danny Willet is the only Masters champion that I could find in recent history (post Tiger coming on in 97′) that didn’t play the par 5’s in at least 3 under par (he was even on the par 5’s which is crazier)

16Trivia question: Who holds the Masters record for most birdies in one round? Answer: Anthony Kim with 11 in 2009….how fucking cool would golf be if Anthony Kim & Tiger we’re at full strength battling in the final round of a major?

17. If you can just PAR holes 1, 11, & 18 (all par 4’s) then you’ve historically gained a full shot on the field. 

18. The two holes that historically can separate you the most from the field? I would have guessed 13 & 15…but it’s actually 3 & 14, by quite a bit. 

19. It’s well known that there has only been one real first-timer to win the Masters, but recently there have been 3 2nd timers to win (Charl, Spieth, Willet)

20. There is a ‘secret service’ certified house on the grounds of Augusta. Speaking of which, something that doesn’t really get talked about but is absolutely nuts…when Reagan was playing out at Augusta one day, a guy crashed through the gates & took hostages in the pro shop!

21. Top 10 the last 50 rounds in ball striking on courses longer than 7400 yards: 1. McIIroy 2. Finau 3. DJ 4. Stenson 5. Woodland 6. Casey 7. Watson 8. Scott 9. JT 10. Rahm

22. Bobby Jones, god bless him, had originally planned a 19th hole (short par 3), the area between the 18th green & the clubhouse that was to act as the ‘bet settling’ hole….a man after my own heart!

23Jack Nicklaus and John Harris are the only pro golfers who are members of Augusta National
