Live-scoring for Masters Par 3 Contest

What is the Masters Par 3 Contest?

The Masters Par 3 Contest is essentially a warm-up for the contestants. It’s very laid back with family and friends usually caddying for the golfers. Golfers will sometimes allow their caddies to attempt a putt or chip here and there.

Interestingly enough, no golfer who has won the Par 3 competition has also won the actual Masters.
