The Legendary Amen Corner: A Challenging and Iconic Three-Hole Stretch at Augusta National
Amen Corner is a nickname given to a specific three-hole stretch at Augusta National Golf Club, where the annual Masters Tournament is held. This famous stretch of the course encompasses the 11th, 12th, and 13th holes and is known for its challenging play and picturesque beauty.
The term “Amen Corner” was coined by American sportswriter Herbert Warren Wind in a 1958 Sports Illustrated article. He used the phrase to describe the pivotal role these holes played in deciding the outcome of the Masters that year. The nickname stuck and is now used to describe this iconic part of the Augusta National course.
These three holes are considered among the most challenging on the course:
- Hole 11 (White Dogwood) – A long par-4 with a downhill tee shot and a green guarded by a pond on the left and a bunker on the right.
- Hole 12 (Golden Bell) – A short par-3 that requires a precise tee shot over the water of Rae’s Creek to a narrow green surrounded by bunkers.
- Hole 13 (Azalea) – A par-5 that features a dogleg left around the corner of Rae’s Creek, requiring a strategic approach to avoid the water hazard and reach the green in two shots for a chance at an eagle.
Amen Corner is famous for its impact on the outcome of the Masters Tournament, as golfers must navigate its challenges under intense pressure, often with the tournament’s outcome hanging in the balance.
