Saturday will see a number of players try to turn the tables on their rivals as they bid for Masters glory - but they best beware the turn at Augusta National.

The mightily difficult first two holes of the back nine have, over the years, caused plenty of trouble for golf's leading lights - none more so than Rory McIlroy who almost ended up in a course-side house after a wild stroke in 2011.

Fortunately, our Shot Centre gurus, Rob Lee, David Howell and Andrew Coltart were on hand during Masters Breakfast to show you how to conqueror the 10th and 11th.

From the downhill drive on the 495-yard tenth, followed by a tricky second onto the devilish green, to the 505-yard eleventh, which cumulates in a tricky approach shot after a reasonably straightforward drive, they examined the challenges of both holes.

"You'd just be delighted to get out with pars - this is where it can all go wrong," said Coltart.

There will be more technical demonstrations, as well as highlights and analysis from Augusta, on Masters Breakfast on Sunday, showing on Sky Sports 4 at 9am - a perfect accompaniment to our live coverage.
