What’s the most diabolical green at Augusta National? We asked experts

Augusta National is known for many things. The azaleas. The towering loblolly pines. The cheap eats. But perhaps its most notable calling card is its greens.

The putting surfaces at Augusta National are legendary. The green coats keep them so quick they can even perplex the best putters in the world. Tiger Woods even rolled his first-ever Masters putt straight off the green in the 1997 tournament, a moment he calls one of the “most embarrassing moments that I can ever remember.”

All 18 greens are tricky, no doubt, but which one is the most difficult? It’s a complicated question to answer, so we enlisted the help of some people who have seen them up close and know a thing or two about how difficult they really are.

Here’s what they had to say.
