Masters Sunday: How will Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Padraig Harrington handle 8-Hole Stretch?
Holes 9-13 are playing as five of the most difficult six holes on Sunday at Augusta National. They account for more than 1/3 of the bogeys and double bogeys on the day. The next trio, however, are three of the easiest five of the round. Holes 14-16 account for 20% of the birdies and eagles made on the day. To have such a stark contrast might make for an incredible back nine at Augusta National. With six strokes separating seven players, it will still take a massive collapse from Snedeker, Immelman and Flesch to allow Casey, Cink, Woods and Harrington back in. However, should someone summon the ghosts of champions past and muster a way to eagle 13 and 15, we’ll have the excitement that we’ve always craved at Augusta. If not, hello southern US Open, where only the strong survive.
