VIDEO: Jack Nicklaus makes hole-in-one in Masters Par 3 Contest

Jack Nicklaus still has plenty of magic in the bag. The Golden Bear showed it Wednesday when he made a hole-in-one during the Masters Par 3 Contest.

On the fourth hole at the short course, Nicklaus hit his tee shot just past the hole, backing the ball up into the cup for the ace.

The best part? In an ESPN interview before competing in the contest, Nicklaus called his shot.

"I never had a hole-in-one at Augusta," Nicklaus said. "It's funny. I had an interview this morning and I said, `Well, all I've got to do is go out and win the Par 3 and make a hole-in-one,' and I make a hole-in-one. I had 3 under for the Par 3 and then choked."

Nicklaus, who finished at 5 over, played alongside Gary Player and Ben Crenshaw, who is playing in his final Masters as a competitor and filling in for Arnold Palmer, who is unable to compete in the Par 3 Contest with his Big Three buddies while recovering from a shoulder injury.
