SHE SAID YES

Masters 2018: The 12th hole at Augusta National is becoming the boss location for golf marriage proposals

April 7, 2018

Amen Corner is synonymous with being one of the most suspenseful three-hole stretches in golf. Spend a day at the short but tricky par-3 12th, and you're sure to see some magic. Lately, those special moments are expanding beyond how the pros play the hole. For the second straight year, we have documented proof that couples are planning -- and executing -- successful marriage proposals on the Golden Bell.

In 2017, Benji Thompson bent down on one knee and proposed to his now-wife Reagan.

This year, Tyler Bell followed suit, as he proposed to Morgan Snyder during Monday's practice round. (Don't worry, she said yes.)

Tyler and Morgan live together in San Antonio, Texas, met back in 2014, and have been together for a little over a year. Bell had to quickly change his initial proposal plans after scoring tickets to Augusta only the week before the tournament. "My plan was to ask in May but how many times are you actually at the Masters?!?" Bell also said there weren't too many people in on the act, and that "Josh Chang (@putterho on Instagram) was my right-hand guy in setting all this up. He lined up Traci Bush (@photo_bratt on Instagram) to take the pictures. She did an amazing job."

If this recent trend is any indication, then expect the 12th hole at Augusta National to become famous for more than just being a pivotal hole for Masters competitors. It's also becoming a landmark for golf marriage proposals. We wish Tyler and Morgan (and Benji and Reagan) a wonderful, happy future together.
