On The Tee: How Titleist Players Approach Augusta National (Outward 9)

It's Masters week and time once again to marvel at the majestic beauty and dramatic challenge of Augusta National Golf Club.

The only golf course to host a major championship every year, Augusta National stands apart, a perfect blend of genius design and a former Georgia nursery that seemed destined for golf. With it's variety of holes and masterful course layout, pristine condition, undulating terrain and glassy, multi-tiered greens, Augusta asks a series of questions that golfers rarely have to answer. At least not all at once.

We wanted to learn more about the nuances of playing Augusta National, so we reached out to a number of Titleist Brand Ambassadors and golf ball loyalists, who opened up their Masters course yardage books and shared their keys and strategies for navigating some of their favorite holes at this iconic golf course.

Join us as for a rare glimpse into the mental side of Masters preparation, as On The Tee takes you on a tour of the Outward Nine at Augusta National.
