Nick Dougherty describes how to tackle one of the most famous golf courses in the world - Augusta National. Hole 1, Tea Olive, 455yds, Par 4:No easy opening hole, with a 300-yard carry needed to fly a big bunker on the right, while anything left catches the trees. Uphill, and plays its yardage.Hole 2, Pink Dogwood, 575yds, Par 5:The first obvious chance to get under the card - reachable in two, and only problems are the well-placed greenside bunkers.Hole 3, Flowering Peach 350yds, Par 4:Classic short par four, where the majority of players will take an iron off the tee, aiming to avoid fairway traps to leave a full wedge into a tricky green.Hole 4, Flowering Crab Apple, 240yds, Par 3:Long iron or hybrid needed to find a two-tier green guarded by two bunkers. The green is narrow and tough to hold.Hole 5, Magnolia, 455yds, Par 4:Tough, uphill dog-leg with two well-positioned bunkers to the left to catch errant drives. The green slopes a lot from front to back, with sand to the rear.Hole 6, Juniper, 180yds, Par 3:Something of a respite, this requires just a mid-iron from an elevated tee to a large, but severely undulating, target.Hole 7, Pampas, 450yds, Par 4:Used to be a real birdie chance until 35-40 yards were added as well as trees by the fairway. Now a driver and a mid-iron to a tough, well-bunkered green.Hole 8, Yellow Jasmine, 570yds, Par 5:Big, accurate drive needed to avoid huge fairway bunkers, this green is only accessible in two to the biggest of hitters.Hole 9, Carolina Cherry, 460yds, Par 4:One of the toughest greens in golf, sloping hugely from front to back. Any approach not hit bravely will roll back down the fairway, leaving a tough third.Hole 10, Camellia, 495yds, Par 4:Downhill, but this is one of the toughest greens to hit. Right-to-left drive required to avoid a treacherous long-iron approach.Hole 11, White Dogwood, 505yds, Par 4:First leg of Amen Corner, and usually the toughest hole. Long dog-leg left, trees on the right and a large pond guarding the green. Take your par and run!Hole 12, Golden Bell, 155yds, Par 3:The most famous par three in golf. Narrow green, water in front, bunkers at the back and nearly always a swirling wind. Hole 13, Azalea, 510yds, Par 5:Dog-leg left, reachable in two, but Raes Creek runs down the left and then in front of the green. A great risk-reward hole featuring eagles ... and sevens!Hole 14, Chinese Fir, 440yds, Par 4:The only hole with no bunkers, but the defence is one of the most testing greens. Three putts are common-place here.Hole 15, Firethorn, 530yds, Par 5:Great risk-reward par five that is reachable in two for most. Water guards the front, while anything over the green in two leaves a treacherous chip back. Hole 16, Redbud, 170yds, Par 3:Mid-iron over water required, with a green which slopes dramatically from right to left. Scary last-day pin placement.Hole 17, Nandina, 440yds, Par 4:The Eisenhower Tree in the centre of the fairway was taken down last year, making the drive much easier. The green is tough to hit and hold, and there is no easy putt.Hole 18, Holly, 465yds, Par 4:All uphill, the drive through an avenue of trees must avoid two fairway bunkers. A two-tiered green sets up a thrilling finale.Watch all four days of the Masters live on Sky Sports 4 - your home of golf.

Aside from the trilogy main event title fight, there are a number of intriguing matchups in the heavyweight, welterweight and lightweight divisions.

Air Max 720 Free Shipping . -- There were so many positives from the Orlando Magics first victory of the season that it was hard for coach Jacque Vaughn to stop praising his players. Cheap Air Max 720 Wholesale CHICAGO -- Jake Arrieta almost certainly wont win a second straight NL Cy Young Award. He likely wont be the No. 1 or 2 postseason pitcher for the loaded Chicago Cubs, either.Arrieta showed Friday he can still dominate. And he figures its because hes stopped trying so hard.Arrieta struck out 10 in seven innings and the Cubs beat the sloppy St. Louis Cardinals 5-0 for their 98th victory, the most since they last played in the World Series in 1945. Chicago clinched home-field advantage throughout the NL playoffs.A lot of the time more effort creates some inconsistencies in my delivery, Arrieta said. Trying to do more than I have to. I had several outs today where I took my foot off the gas and I was at 60-70 percent and got nice, easy groundballs to second base or shortstop.Manager Joe Maddon said Arrieta looked familiar when he struck out the side on 11 pitches in the first inning, a reference to his 22-win 2015 season that included a 1.77 ERA. Arrieta said competitiveness and stubbornness have been the reasons his walks, hits and runs are up from a year ago.Weve been hyper-critical of him all year based on what he did last year, Maddon said. But to his credit, I think hes handled that very well.With veteran Miguel Montero back catching him, Arrieta (18-7) allowed five hits and walked one. Anthony Rizzo had three hits and Ben Zobrist drove in two runs as the Cubs tied a team record with their 56th home win.Chicago scored four runs in the first inning off Mike Leake (9-11) and dropped the Cardinals 1 1/2 games behind the Mets and a half-game behind the Giants for the two NL wild-card berths.Pedro Strop came off the disabled list to work the eighth, and Travis Wood and Carl Edwards Jr. finished the five-hitter.Rizzo, Zobrist and Chris Coghlan drove in runs in the first off Leake, who lasted 3 1/3 innings and is winless in four starts since recovering from shingles.I couldnt locate early. I was slightly erratic, Leake said. I just started out on the wrong foot.Leake allowed another run on one of two wild pitches. Cardinals gaffes included Kolten Wong face-planting into the turf chasing Rizzos first-inning ddouble and Matt Adams getting picked off first.ddddddddddddLeake gave up five runs, seven hits and three walks. Manager Mike Matheny used six relievers.The Cardinals are hoping to return to Wrigley Field in two weeks. But that requires earning one of the two wild-card berths and then winning the single-elimination game for a spot in the division series.Zobrists fourth-inning groundout added another run for Chicago (98-55), which has won four straight.The Cubs have so much depth as they seek their first World Series title since 1908 that Arrieta is likely the No. 3 playoff starter behind Jon Lester and Kyle Hendricks.But Arrieta feels if he can control his effort, hell be at his best come October.I dont give up many hits, Arrieta said. So if I can keep guys off base via the walk, Im going to be in a pretty good spot.TRAINERS ROOMCardinals: LF Matt Holliday (broken right thumb) took batting practice off RHP Mike Mayers before the game. He blistered a couple balls, Matheny said. It was exciting to see. Holliday will likely have another BP session before hes activated. ... SS Aledmys Diaz (arm fatigue) was out of the lineup.Cubs: Strop (knee, groin) worked around a leadoff walk in his first appearance since Aug. 10. Once he settled in and the slider became his pitch again, he felt at home, Maddon said.GROOMSMAN STRIKES OUTArrieta and Cardinals 2B Matt Carpenter were college teammates at TCU. Arrieta was Carpenters wedding groomsman. Yet Carpenter cant solve his friend. He went 0 for 3 with two strikeouts, leaving him 0 for 24 in the regular season against Arrieta.CARDINALS ROTATIONLHP Jaime Garcia will take the Cardinals rotation spot of struggling RHP Luke Weaver on Monday vs. Cincinnati.ROSS RECOGNIZEDCubs chairman Tom Ricketts presented retiring C David Ross with the No. 3 from the Wrigley Field manual scoreboard before the game.UP NEXTRHP Jason Hammel (15-9, 3.56 ERA), contending for the final Cubs postseason rotation spot, faces rookie RHP Alex Reyes (3-1, 1.08) on Saturday.
