Masters 2019 Par 3 Contest


It was a perfect day for practice and a chance to get back to what matters most to the players, spending some time with their families. 

Massive crowds came out for wednesday’s practice. Some Masters traditions, like skipping the balls over the pond on no. 16. are always a favorite for both patrons and players. Brooks Koepka scored a hole in one on his tee shot on no. 16. 

Players new to the Masters, like Keith Mitchell and amateur Viktor Hovland were mining the minds of veteran players like Phil Mickelson. 

Phil Mickelson took around some of the players today including John Rahm who was his playig partner in the first two rounds.

Aiken’s kevin kisner, lined up a practice round with Tiger Woods, Fred Couples, and Justin Thomas. 

Par 3 day is one of the best days of Masters week. But there is a supposed jinx that goes along with winning this event.  

So, how should a master’s participant play the par 3?
In the nearly 60 years of the par-3 tournament, no winner has gone on to win the masters in the same year.
So what if you were leading the par three at the last hole? Should you go for the win, or hit it in the water?

Here is what Mark Stojevich had to say,
“You can’t win it.  no, you can’t win it.  You gotta put it in the water.”
Do you believe in the jinx that much?
“No, not at all, but you can’t leave anything to chance.”
So, if you’re the guy you’re betting on, and he get’s to nine, you’re saying, get wet.
“Yeah, definitely.”

11 Masters champions have won the par-3, just not in the  year that won the tournament.
The last Masters champ to win the par-3 was Tom Watson, just last year.
