Tangible benefits to Hootie's progressive ways:
For the first time ever, visitors to masters.org, the Tournament's official Web site, will be able to see every golfer play Amen Corner live.
Visitors to "Amen Corner Live" on masters.org will be able to see live action prior to the start of the daily television broadcast. The free service will be available Thursday, April 6 through Sunday, April 9. Approximate web cast times are 10:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Thursday and Friday, 12:30 p.m. - 5 p.m. Saturday and 1:30 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. Sunday. Visitors should check masters.org daily for exact times. All times are eastern daylight savings times.
"The importance and use of the Internet continues to grow and we think this is another service to our patrons," said Hootie Johnson, Chairman of Augusta National Golf Club and the Masters Tournament. "The ability to see live action at Amen Corner is something very special."
In previous years masters.org has provided live coverage of hole Nos. 6 and 12, but only during the practice rounds.
