Englishman David Lynn, who is making his Masters debut this week, said he hadn’t thought about checking out the spot where Watson hit the famous shot.

“You’d have to walk off the beaten track a little bit to go see it,” Lynn said. “There are a lot of shots I’ve seen there over the years I could look at spots from. You’ve just seen so many shots there that have been hit. There are too many to name. I’m sure when I’m there and I’m standing in that position there will be stuff coming back into my mind.”

Playing the role of tour guide, Harrington has a suggestion for Masters rookies such as Lynn.

“The first year you get there, the two shots you try out are the chip from the right of 11 (which Larry Mize holed to win the 1987 Masters) and you practice the Seve Ballesteros 15th (when he hit in the water in 1986), unfortunately. You don’t try and duff it. But this is the problem with the course, you have baggage. There’s excess baggage always at Augusta. You have experience but you have excess baggage. Everybody carries a few scars that they remember.”
