Tom Watson became the oldest ever victor of the Masters Par-3 contest on Wednesday with a stunning performance.

If you were tuned into Wednesday's Masters Par 3 Contest, then you likely witnessed something pretty wonderful.

Gary Jr celebrates the shot with his grandfather and Tom Watson by his side. And exactly zero times has the victor gone on to win the actual Masters Tournament.

"Since I'm not playing in the tournament I said let's go for it this year". "So I've had to double up".

Famously, no victor of the par-3 contest has ever gone on to triumph in the Masters the same year.

"It was a marvelous day, " said Player, 82, who was 2 under par.

Finau seeminly dislocated his ankle and then looked to pop it back in after he twisted it while running in celebration after sinking his tee shot for a hole in one of. After a great tee shot set him up with a short birdie putt on the green, Thomas pulled a young patron out of the gallery and enlisted him to complete the hole for him. "This is probably my favorite week of the year". "For that to happen was just unbelievable". "But my thought process was to do the best I could". That record will remain intact, as Watson is not in the playing field this week. "To watch the kid knock in a hole-in-one on the biggest venue in the world, wow". I mean what a day'. "And to have his sister, Nina, with us too".
