What is Amen Corner?

The name ‘Amen Corner’ has been given to the run through holes 11, 12 and 13 and has proven to be one of the toughest challenges on the golf circuit. The name dates back to the 1958 Masters, where Arnold Palmer secured the very first major championship victory of his illustrious career after a controversial ruling surrounding an embedded ball that was allowed to be dropped without penalty. The name itself was given by former Sports Illustrated writer Herbert Warren Wind, who took inspiration from a Bluebird record named “Shoutin’ in that Amen Corner” to summarise the approach on the 11th, the entire 12th and the tee shot of the 13th – though all three holes have been included in Amen Corner as time has worn on.
