"Amen Corner Live" to Feature Four Day Coverage of the 11th, 12th and 13th Holes from Augusta National Golf Club
FT. LAUDERDALE, FL, and AUGUSTA, GA, March 29, 2006 - CBS SportsLine, a leading Internet sports media organization and part of CBS Digital Media, in conjunction with Masters.org, CBS Sports and Augusta National Golf Club today announced that there will be live streaming video from Amen Corner® for the 2006 Masters® Tournament from the majestic setting of Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Ga.
"Amen Corner Live" will be available at www.masters.org as well as cbs.sportsline.com and will be presented all four days of the 2006 Masters® Tournament, April 6-9. In total there will be approximately 22 hours of live video from Augusta National Golf Club.
Hosts for "Amen Corner Live" will be Masters® Tournament veterans Mike Hulbert and Phil Blackmar. Hulbert and Blackmar have combined to participate in six Masters® Tournaments.
The name Amen Corner refers to hole Nos. 11, 12 and 13. Amen Corner was first coined in a 1958 Sports Illustrated article by Herbert Warren Wind. Wind was searching for an appropriate name for the location where the critical action had taken place that year. He borrowed the name from an old jazz recording "Shouting at Amen Corner" by a band under the direction of Milton (Mezz) Mezzrow, a Chicago clarinetist. (Courtesy Masters.org)
The Masters®, the most renowned tournament in golf, will be broadcast on CBS for the 51st consecutive year, a record for the longest-running sporting event broadcast on one network. This year marks the 70th Masters Tournament, one of the most highly-anticipated sporting events of the year. This spring finds Tiger Woods returning to Augusta to defend his title once again after becoming only the third person to win at least four Masters Tournaments, joining Jack Nicklaus (6) and Arnold Palmer (4).
