I love an old stat and thanks to the Masters being at the same venue every year, there's a wealth of them.

They say you need four things to win a Masters. So lets throw them all in a pot and see who comes out on top.

  • Greens in Regulation: The winner always hits a lot of greens and manages the course.
  • Scrambling: Swails, run offs, tightly mown verges, fast greens.....you have to be able to scramble well.
  • Three putt avoidance: Augusta's average 6,486 square feet greens are probably the toughest in the world.  And running at 15 to 16 on the stimp.  Often you must play away from the pin so 3 putt avoidance is key.
  • Par 5 scoring: Big hitters can make up shots on the field on the par-5's.


So here is the table of these four stats and who fronts up.
