The 13th hole at Augusta National statistically ranks as one of the easiest holes at The Masters, although the iconic par-five left plenty of players frustrated during this year’s contest.

The 510-yard hole is comfortably reachable in two with an accurate tee shot on the dogleg left par-five, but not everyone has been able to make the most of the opportunity during the opening men’s major of the year.
