Daily Divot – “Amen Corner”…what & where?
- Updated: April 9, 2011
Each April, the first major of the year, The Masters, is played at Augusta National. The most famous stretch of grass anywhere in the world can be found here. The par 4 11th, par 3 12th and the par 5 13th are what has come to be known as the AMEN CORNER. Undoubtedly the most recognizable and drama filled 3 hole stretch of any major golf championship. The term AMEN CORNER was first used in a 1958 Sports Illustrated article about the Masters that year. Herbert Wind said he was looking for a catchy phrase like baseball’s “hot-corner” or football’s “coffin-corner” to explain where some of the most exciting golf had taken place. Amen to that.
