Adjust Comment Print

Jack Nicklaus' grandson Gary stole the show during Wednesday's par-three contest at Augusta with an ace at the final hole.

The streak will continue this year, as 68-year-old Tom Watson won the Par-3 and will not be playing in the Masters.

Jack Nicklaus has enjoyed many memorable moments at Augusta National over the years, but it was his grandson's turn to bring the house down with a hole-in-one on Wednesday.

Permitted to take the tee-shot, Gary managed to pull off a brilliant hole-in-one before celebrating with his grandad, Gary Player and Tom Watson. That was his first hole-in-one.

Nicklaus finished on four under for the Par 3 Tournament, with Watson winning it outright on six under.

Watson also took Slammin' Sammy's record as the oldest Par 3 Contest victor, as Snead was 61 when he won the competition in 1974.

"Since I'm not playing in the tournament, I thought, 'Let's go for it this year, '" he said afterward. He asked his grandson and caddie Gary to give it a try off the same tee (a tradition welcomed during the Par 3 contest), and sure enough - he made it! "Watching your grandson do something is pretty special", the 18-time major victor said. However, the best highlight of the day from the group came from one of their caddies on the final hole of the day.

GT Nicklaus added: "This is probably my favourite week of the year and this is a special tournament, golf is a sport that I love and for that to happen is just unbelievable".
