  • Hole 1: Tea Olive – Par 4, 445 yards (Rank 6)

Rory McIlroy (+750): The 2022 FedEx Cup Champion is still shooting for his first Masters win. A green jacket completes the career grand slam for the 33-year-old Irishman and 4-time major winner (None since a pair in 2014). Six top-10 finishes in the Masters including 2nd last year but he never contended with a final round 8-under par 64 shooting him up the leaderboard.

  • Hole 2: Pink Dogwood – Par 5, 575 yards (Rank 18)

Scottie Scheffler (+750): Defending Masters champion and regained World No. 1 ranking following his win at the 2023 PLAYERS Championship.
