Tiger Woods will compete in Masters Par-3 Contest with kids

This is a different Tiger Woods.

For the first time since 2004, Tiger Woods will play in the Masters Par-3 Contest on Wednesday with his two children, Sam and Charlie, alongside.

"They're excited, I'm excited and I can't wait to go out there," Woods said Tuesday.

Woods will have his kids along as caddies, letting them putt on the greens of the short course at Augusta National. That would prevent Woods from keeping an official score and preclude him from winning the contest. That's good news, however, as no player has ever won the Par-3 Contest then gone on to win the Masters that year.

Woods has been more vocal about his life as a parent in recent years, particularly since returning from microdiscectomy surgery a little over a year ago. The 14-time major champion has spoken about playing soccer with his kids, attending games and enjoying the fruits of being a dad. Woods shares custody of his children with ex-wife Elin Nordegren.

Back in '04, Woods competed alongside Arnold Palmer, making an ace on the ninth and final hole of the course.
