  • The Masters- Par 3 Contest

On the final hole of the contest, Jack let Gary take the tee shot, and the younger Nicklaus made the most of it.

He started running toward the hole to celebrate, then turned and backpedaled before landing awkwardly on his left ankle. Many believed he was a sleeper to win the whole tournament, but his run for a green jacket could be in jeopardy if the ankle injury is enough to keep him out.

During the Par-3 contest, Finau had his shot roll about 20 feet on the green before finding the cup on the No. 7 hole, according to Golf.com, giving the 28-year-old a hole-in-one.

THE ANNUAL Par-3 Contest took place at Augusta today ahead of the opening round of the 2018 Masters on Thursday.

Watson, who stopped playing the Masters tournament in 2016, became only the second player to win the Par-3 and not play in the tournament, joining Jerry Pate in 2005.

The contest has been held every year since 1960.

"I said, "well I think you're going to make a hole-in-one".

As for Watson, who needed only eight putts on the nine holes, he joked, "That was the Watson of old".

"Seeing Tom at 68 putting the way he did was just a joy, and Jack at 78 shooting 4-under par, it was a day I'll never forget, " Player said.
