1958 Masters


In 1958, Palmer won the 22nd playing of the Masters Tournament, the first of his four green jackets. But the win didn’t come without some controversy. On the 12th hole, an embedded ball had Palmer ask for relief. At the time, he wasn’t granted it and made double bogey. Upset over the questionable ruling, he played another ball from the same spot after taking relief and made par. Several holes later, it was determined his par would stand. It was also during this tournament that Sports Illustrated writer, Herbert Warren Wind coined the term “Amen Corner” in a story recounting the action.
