Renovation to the 13th tee box at Augusta National Golf Club looks to be complete, ready for Masters 2023

The 13th hole at Augusta National has long been a place of possibility for players looking to make a move up the leaderboard at the 11th hour. In 2022, the hole played a mere 510 yards, and with the opportunity to cut the corner, it could play much shorter.

To put it in perspective, Rory McIlroy hit 3-wood off the tee Sunday of the 2022 Masters and had only 203 yards into the green.

This strategy, however, is no longer an option.

Eureka Earth, your source for all things Augusta National during the year, posted an updated look at the 13th tee box Tuesday morning, and construction seems to be complete.

It is Finished…

On June 20th, Eureka Earth posted photos of construction beginning on the historic par 5. Judging by the length between the outlined new tee box and the existing one, the back tee could play 40-50 yards longer in the 2023 Masters in April.

Knowing how Augusta likes to keep things under wraps, we most likely won’t know the official yardage
