Arnold Palmer

In 1958 a young pro named Arnold Palmer claimed the first of four Masters wins. And Amen Corner was born. The famous stretch of holes -- Nos. 11, 12 and 13 -- had been in existence for 25 years, but a catchy nickname didn't exist until Sports Illustrated golf writer  Herbert Warren Wind came up with the term, to describe the Sunday action, after Palmer played two balls on the 12th hole amid a rules controversy and making eagle on the par-5 13th during the final round. Palmer also won the Masters in 1960, 1962 and 1964. He currently serves as an honorary starter, along with Gary Player and Jack Nicklaus.
