Amen Corner - Augusta National

  • Amen Corner is the nickname for holes 10-12 at the Masters and is known as the hardest holes.
  • Odds for golfers starting on Hole 10 will likely see an increase after their opening results.

AUGUSTA, Ga. – With a minor change in this year’s Master’s Tournament, golf bettors have already been granted with a golf live betting opportunity. Originally scheduled to begin play at 7:10 a.m. ET, the officials were concerned about the ninth hole being too dark to start play in the late fall weather.

Instead, Masters participants will begin play at either the first or tenth hole, where more light shines in. The Masters was delayed due to inclement weather, so light will no longer be an issue for Round 1, however, the Major’s plans have left golfers smiling.

Holes 10-12 at the Masters are known as Amen Corner and are known as the three hardest holes on the golf course. With golfers planning to begin play with Amen Corners, one might expect their beginning three holes to not be on track with expectations.

While this could be concerning for some, it leaves an excellent live betting opportunity for those betting on the Masters. Assuming favorites or longshots to win the Masters fall into an early hole, their live golf betting odds will increase to a level unseen before the tournament started.

Being in the positives (or even not finding a birdie), legal sports betting fans can find excellent value if bet at the right moment.

Notable Golfers Beginning Play At Amen Corner

  • Jon Rahm +1000
  • Bryson DeChambeau +750
  • Louis Oosthuizen +6600
  • Paul Casey +10000
  • Patrick Reed +3300
  • Tony Finau +2500
  • Tiger Woods +3300
  • Jordan Spieth +6600
  • Francesco Molinari +12500

Arranged by tee time order, many of these golfers will give headaches to those who took the early odds on these players. However, those who waited until after the three hardest holes at the Masters may be rewarded with a better option.

With rain and lightning looking to plague the course until the late morning, golf fans will have even more time to finalize their Masters Tournament bets.
