The Masters is home to one of the most iconic three-hole stretches in golf, but what is the secret to success when playing Amen Corner at Augusta National?
Ahead of the world’s top players heading to Georgia for the opening men’s major of the year, live on Sky Sports’ dedicated Masters channel, we sent two-time European Tour winner Eddie Pepperell into the Shot Centre to try and tackle those three recognisable holes.
With Sky Sports News’ Jamie Weir alongside him and wearing a trademark boiler synonymous with caddies at The Masters, Pepperell shared his experiences of playing at Augusta National in 2019 as he took on the 11th, 12th and 13th holes in the studio.
Pepperell, who finished tied-51st in his sole Masters appearance, explains what makes the par-four 11th one of the toughest tee shots on the course before playing the hole – dubbed ‘White Dogwood’ – himself.
The Englishman safely found dry land at the par-three 12th, a hole that has seen many players come unstuck during Masters history, although didn’t see things go to plan off the tee at the par-five next.
