___

No. 16, 170 yards, par 3 (Redbud): The hole is played entirely over water and eventually bends to the left. Two bunkers guard the right side, and the green slopes significantly from right to left. The Sunday pin typically is back and on the lower shelf, and pars from the top shelf that day are rare.

Masters memory: Tiger Woods had a one-shot lead over Chris DiMarco when he missed the green long in 2005. He chipped away from the hole up the slope, watched it make a U-turn at the top and roll back toward the hole, pausing for 2 full seconds before dropping for birdie.

Average score and rank: 3.16 (9th)

___

No. 17, 440 yards, par 4 (Nandina): The Eisenhower Tree to the left of the fairway is prominent at 210 yards from the tee, requiring another accurate tee shot. The green is protected by two bunkers in the front.

Masters memory: Jack Nicklaus made his final birdie in 1986 with an 18-foot putt that sent him to a 30 on the back nine and a 65, giving him a one-shot win and his sixth Masters. The pose Nicklaus struck when the putt dropped is captured in a bronze of him outside his clubhouse at Muirfield Village.

Average score and rank: 4.16 (10th)

___

No. 18, 465 yards, par 4 (Holly): Now among the most demanding finishing holes in golf, this uphill dogleg right is protected off the tee by two deep bunkers at the left elbow _ the only bunkers in play off the tee on the back nine (except for par 3s). Trees get in the way of a drive that strays to the right. A middle iron typically is required to a green that has a bunker in front and to the right.

Masters memory: Arnold Palmer was tied in 1960 with Ken Venturi, who was in the clubhouse at 5-under 283. He hit 6-iron into 6 feet and made the birdie, becoming the first Masters champion to birdie the last two holes to win by one stroke.

Average score and rank: 4.23 (6th)
