Teenager Shoots 57
Teenager Bobby Wyatt scores 57 to win tourney
What with Ryo Ishikawa's 58 on the Japan circuit and Paul Goydos and Stuart Appleby's 59s on the PGA Tour, 2010 has already seen its fair share of really low scoring. But arguably the round of the summer was Bobby Wyatt's staggering 57 at the Alabama Boys' State Junior Championship. The 17-year-old made 12 birdies, an eagle and five pars over the par-71, 6,628-yard course at the Country Club of Mobile in late July. Wyatt needed only 23 putts and shot a 9-under 26 on the front nine."It was unbelievable," said Wyatt, whose birdie putt on the last hole hung on the lip. He had to settle for par. "People were congratulating me as I made the turn, but I knew there was a lot of golf to be played." Needless to say, Wyatt won the tournament for the third-straight year.

In late April 1958, legendary golf writer Herbert Warren Wind was looking for a catchy phrase to describe the three holes at Augusta National Golf Club – 11, 12 and 13 – that provided the most drama and excitement during the Masters of that year. Baseball had “Hot Corner”, while American Football had “Coffin Corner” – what could the golfing equivalent be? His answer: Amen Corner. Fast forward to 2012 and these three holes are still just as thrilling as they were 50 years ago. Three-time Masters champion Nick Faldo guides us around arguably the most famous acreage of terrain in the game.
