Based on some of the pictures posted by Eureka Earth, The best I can tell, the hole has only been lengthened by ~18 yards, with only ~15 yards separating the back of the old tee with the front of the new tee. So, we're looking at the hole being listed at something like 530 yards on the card this year.

This would be an excellent chance to show that you can give a simple, unqualified apology.Apologize for what, exactly?

If this Golf Digest article is to be believed, new Masters Tee yardage is 545y. I don't remember the exact verbiage ANGC uses for their tee yardages, but I believe it's back of the teebox to center of the green - always measured in 5y increments.https://www.golfdigest.com/story/augusta-national-13th-hole-changes-the-loop-podcast"Though Augusta National won't confirm the exact yardage of the new tee until Masters Week, we're told from a recent visitor that the scorecard reads 545 from the tournament tees."
I've shown this whole thread to five other people today.
Based on the previous 510 number, It would appear they would have to be using a 3 shot, double dogleg measuring route. Even if the measuring point is moved back only 20 yards, that could add another 30+ yards to the hole just on changing the corner of the dogleg for the measurement.
