Get to Know: The Masters
- Bob Jones and Clifford Roberts organized the first event, later named the Masters Tournament, at Augusta National in 1934.
- The Masters Tournament was called the "Augusta National Invitational" for the first five years (1934-1938).
- Jack Nicklaus has the most Masters Tournament wins, with six.
- Amen Corner refers to holes No. 11, 12 and 13. In 1958, a Sports Illustrated writer, Herbert Warren Wind, named the second half of hole No. 11, hole No. 12 and the first half of hole No. 13 Amen Corner. This is where the critical action took place that year. He borrowed the name from an old jazz recording called "Shouting at Amen Corner."
- "The big oak tree" on the golf course side of the Clubhouse is about 145-150 years old. This live oak tree was planted in the 1850's.
- Each hole is named after a plant or shrub. For example, No. 3 is called "Flowering Crab Apple."
- The tradition of members wearing green jackets began in 1937, when jackets were purchased from New York's Brooks Uniform Co. The idea was that Masters patrons easily could see members who would have accurate information.
- The 1967 Masters was the first sporting event ever broadcast live to an overseas audience. Sporting events had been broadcast overseas prior to 1967, but not live. When the BBC broadcast the 1967 Masters live to a British audience via satellite, it literally opened up a whole new world in sports broadcasting and television in general.
