The Member Tees measure just 6,365 yards, almost eleven hundred yards less than the Masters Tees. On some holes, like 16, the disparity was negligible, but on others, like 11, the difference was more than 100 yards. It was a lot easier coming into the treacherous 11th green with a wedge instead of a 3-iron, that's for sure.
I have always felt and said that a man who can be a champion in one era could be a champion in any other era because he has what it takes to reach the top. BEN HOGAN
