“Amen Corner” in Myrtle Beach: Charlie and Paige Take It On at World Tour

In the lead-up to The Masters, Myrtle Beach golf ambassadors Paige Spiranac and Charlie Rymer paid a visit to World Tour Golf Links to get a first-hand sense of Myrtle Beach golf’s tribute to Augusta National’s famed “Amen Corner.” Check out their playing experience in this video!

 

 

Paige Spiranac: Hi, everyone. It’s Paige, and I’m with Charlie, and today we’re playing at World Tour Golf Links, and we’re starting at three-hole stretch that’s kind of famous, you could say.

Charlie Rymer: Well, Amen Corner, technically, is the second half of 11, 12, and 13 of Augusta National, and these are replica holes of Augusta National. And Paige, I think it’s the greatest three-hole stretch in the world. It’s beautiful, certainly. But it’s also very strategic, there’s a lot of excitement, there’s a lot of danger. Over the years, we’ve just seen so much happen on those three holes.

Charlie Rymer: And it’s really all about angles. You can look right down here, over our shoulder, this is pretty wide, which is cool because that produces some angles.

Paige Spiranac: Yeah.

Charlie Rymer: So, you have to make a lot of decisions.

Charlie Rymer: I’ve got a picture at home on my desktop on my computer, and 11 green’s really close to 12 green, and the flag on 11 was blowing towards me, and the flag on 12 was blowing the other direction.

Paige Spiranac: Yeah.

Charlie Rymer: So, 70 yards apart, the wind swirls, and that’s what makes those three holes so incredibly difficult. It’s trying to figure out what in the world the wind’s doing. And then, of course, you’re feeling pretty nervous when you’re playing them too. But I absolutely love them. By far, the best three-hole stretch in the world.

Paige Spiranac: Well, you said you play there quite a bit, this will be my first time playing the three-hole stretch so I’m excited!
