Ben Hogan and Byron Nelson have their bridges. So, too, does Gene Sarazen and Jack Nicklaus has a plaque between 16 green and 17 tee.

The two bridges that traverse Rae’s Creek at Amen Corner each commemorate an important player and moment in Masters history.

Hogan’s bridge, which leads to the left side of the 12th green, pays tribute to his record low score of 274 in 1953, while Nelson bridge, which crosses the creek in front of the 13th tee, honors Nelson’s 1937 win. The first bridge at Augusta named for a player, the Sarazen Bridge, was dedicated on April 6, 1955. It crosses a small body of water fronting the No. 15 green.
