What do you think you would shoot at Augusta from the members tees, which, if I’m not mistaken, measure around 6400 yards? 

My handicap right now is 15.5. If I played Augusta, I don’t think the length would be much of a problem for me, but the greens probably would. Despite not being cut to Masters pace, I imagine they would be rolling at around 12. Given that, I think I’d be very happy with something around 100-105. A great day might be around 95, but I put the 100-110 option.

I don't think I'd shoot anything at Augusta. Their security guards would probably shoot me before I came anywhere near with a golf club in hand.

I opted for 100-110.  I would like to think I could scrape together a round in the 90's but it would likely come down to what sort of chips/putts I left myself.

I'd spend a month practicing putting up to the date of my round and shoot mid-high 70s. With my current game it's probably high 70s-low 80s.

I chose break 80.  From 6400 yards, length would not be an issue, should have short irons in on most holes.  I would hope to shoot right around a 72-76 somewhere in there.  I like faster greens over slower, but I think during regular (non-Masters) days, they would be rolling around a 10-11 maybe.

Tee to green is as nice as it gets, relatively no rough or penalizing type lies, as long as shots go to a spot (if you can do that).  Green speeds make less difference at Augusta, it's the undulations that take control.  If you get a veteran caddie, listen to him and it makes you look like a pro.  Without him, you're toasted.

You're a 12 handicap. From 6400 yards.

I’m not sure what I would shoot at Augusta, but I know it would be dream to play to there. It’s difficult to speculate, but the Augusta caddy assigned would certainly help save strokes. I’ve been a low handicapper a very long time but I still couldn’t guarantee a score there. I would be in awe the entire time.

Augusta is really not that difficult.  or, at least not to be put on a pedestal of difficult courses. 

43 players played the tournament under par last year, and it typically takes double digits under par to win.   from a difficulty standpoint, is usually pretty similar to The Payers Championship at Sawgrass.
Obviously not easy, but we're not exactly talking about a Winged Foot, or Carnoustie, or  Shinnecock here.

    • Day 51 - Worked on some hip turn in the mirror. Need to film for Evolvr tomorrow, see how my setup looks. 
    • Made it through 16 holes today at +11 (73). Had 14 GIR/nGIR. I was about 30 yards from the green on a par-5 when I had to quit due to darkness. Just extrapolating my scoring, if I par #17 (considering I was close to GIR already), and bogey #18, that would be an 83, which is an excellent score for me on this course, from the tees I was playing. My ball striking was good all round, and I only had one horrendous mishit (topped a 3W off the tee on #2, ended up making a 6). The wind was strong and gusty so the ball was doing some weird stuff. On the first hole I flushed my drive, and it only got out 228 yards, then proceeded to hit my hybrid 260 yards just short of the green.  
    • Day 317 Played 16 holes today. Started pretty late in the afternoon, and was almost home on the par-5 17th hole when it was finally too dark to continue so I picked up and headed home. One of the best rounds in recent memory, and there was some pretty wild wind to contend with. Too tired for a superspeed workout so that will wait until tomorrow.
    • The only people that are allowed to whine about 3 putt pars are tour pros😉. Just kidding. Glad you got out for a round, and keep that driver in play and going LONG!!!
    • Day 126.  Speed sticks, protocol one at halftime of SNF.  It has been eleven days since I did this last;  that's way too long.
