The Masters Par-3 Contest is a Wednesday tradition at Augusta National Golf Club's 1,060-yard par-3 course. Of course, players don't really want to win because no Masters contestant has ever won the Par-3 Contest on Wednesday and then worn the green jacket as champion on Sunday. So, it's in a player's best interest to get themselves disqualified or turn in a not-so-good score just to make sure they don't win. Maybe throw a ball or two in the water.
Another good way to make sure you don't win is to have your kids or wife or girlfriend join you and serve as caddie. Maybe even let them hit a shot or two on your behalf. Hit a few putts. Keep it light and make sure you don't win.
Several players have their wives and girlfriends as caddies in the Masters Par-3 Contest, and here are some of them.
