Start of the 1958 Masters

On this day in 1958, 86 players teed it up for the first round of 22nd Masters Tournament.

Arnold Palmer went on to win his first of four Masters titles. He eagled the 13th hole on Sunday to propel him to victory. He had rounds of 70-73-68-73 for a total of 284 four-under-par and collected the winners check for $11,250.

It was also at this Masters Tournament that Sports Illustrated writer Herbert Warren Wind first used the term "Amen Corner" in a story to describe where the critical final day's action had occurred.
