Share this article


The traditional par-3 contest before golf's Masters has been cancelled.

Tournament organisers say the experience wouldn't have been the same without guests and patrons of Augusta National.

Originally scheduled for April, players will now compete for the green jacket from November 12.

"The fun and excitement of watching Masters competitors with their friends and family is what makes the Par 3 Contest such a special part of Masters week,” Chairman of Augusta National Golf Club Fred Ridley said.

“We know that experience could not have been replicated without guests and patrons at Augusta National, and we eagerly anticipate the opportunity to bring back this signature tradition.”

The 84th edition of The Masters will see Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player get proceedings underway as Honorary Starters.

Ridley added, "While we will dearly miss our patrons at Augusta National this fall, we are excited to showcase what promises to be a truly memorable Masters in a variety of ways for viewers around the world.”
