The Masters - Par 3 Contest

Golf

ByTheMinGolf

Hello folks, it's my favourite week of the year, the time for the pro's and select few amateurs to head down Magnolia Lane and tackle Amen Corner at the magnificent Augusta National, its The Masters

I'm Chris Rolfe and I'm joining you for a bit of fun before the serious stuff gets underway, the traditional par 3 contest

Live coverage is moments away, Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player and Tom Watson have teed off and Tommy Fleetwood currently tops the leaderboard at -5

Here's the top of the leaderboard

We've already had a hole in one, Dylan Fritelli knocking an ace in on number 8

Jack Nicklaus has hit a corker on the first, trickling down the slope to about 2 feet, the great man is rolling back the years as ever

Rickie Fowler, Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas are all playing together, really good friends and Spieth and Fowler have started well, both -2 thru 4

3 supreme tee shots from the legends group on 1, Tom Watson has made a birdie 2, Gary Player just missing a short one to make par and Jack has rolled his in for a birdie

Of course no one has ever won this tournament and gone on to take The Masters, if things don't change Tommy Fleetwood will be hoping to change that, he's going to have to handle the madness that comes with playing with Tiger Woods for the first 2 rounds though

Jack Nicklaus is on fire!!!!! A magnificent tee shot on the 2nd and he has another 2 footer for birdie, Player and Watson both hitting equally as impressive tee shots
