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 will broadcast live streaming video from Amen Corner for the 2006 Masters.
“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.
The name Amen Corner refers to holes 11, 12 and 13. The term ‘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 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.
