Augusta National is the latest golf course making a dramatic change in order to keep up with the length of the modern game.

The prestige course is in the process of adding a tee box to the par-4 fifth that will lengthen the hole by 30 yards, according to Golf Channel's Tim Rosaforte.

"The new hole will play upwards of 485 yards in an attempt to restore the shot value that has been taken away by the distances achieved by the modern game," Rosaforte said. "Instead of 3-woods and 7-irons, the new fifth should require a driver and a 5-iron, at the very least, depending upon the conditions."

The fifth hole, which previously played at 455 yards, was already the fifth-toughest par-4 on the course at this year's Masters.

Johnson, Kisner share house, lead at Open Championship .
Zach Johnson and Kevin Kisner are more than just housemates this week. They share the lead in the British Open. Johnson, whose name already is on the Claret Jug from his playoff victory at St. Andrews three years ago, holed a 30-foot birdie putt Friday on the 18th hole at Carnoustie for a 4-under 67 just as the rain was starting to end.Kisner would have loved a finish like that. Instead, his 8-iron floated out of the rough, bounced in front of Barry Burn and caromed off the rock wall that lines the stream. He made double bogey for a 70 that cost him a two-shot lead, but not his outlook.
