Jordan Spieth’s grandfather will be his Masters Par-3 Contest caddie

At the 2016 Masters Par-3 Contest, Jordan Spieth is going to give his usual caddie, Michael Greller, a few hours off the clock.

The reigning Masters champion will enlist the help of his grandfather, 73-year-old Donald Spieth, to carry his bag during the nine-hole trek around Augusta National Golf Club's short course on the Wednesday before the year's first major.

Spieth's grandfather is a music teacher at Moravian College and Northampton Community College in Pennsylvania, north of Philadelphia.

However, Spieth probably won't be trying to win one for his grandfather on the eve of the Masters. No player has ever won the Par-3 Contest on the Wednesday of the Masters and gone on to slip on a green jacket as the new Masters champion that Sunday night.
