Jovial Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player get Masters under way

Phil Mickelson has mixed feelings about overtaking Jack Nicklaus as oldest Masters champion Phil Mickelson has mixed feelings about overtaking Jack Nicklaus as oldest Masters champion

"The statement you make is that this game's for older people", said Par 3 Contest victor and 68 year old, Tom Watson on Wednesday.

When Nicklaus walked up to hole No. 9 he had Gary hit the tee shot. So we need our leaders to come up with ideas that are new and to get more rounds of golf played.

No player has ever won the par three contest and gone on to win the Masters in the same year, but Watson was a longshot for victory anyway.

"It's the Watson of old", joked Watson, who won two of his eight major championships at Augusta National.

"You've got to be kidding me", Nicklaus said. "To have a hole-in-one on the biggest venue in the world on a day where he's here to caddie for his grandfather. and then to knock it in the hole. Wow".

Garcia rebounded with a birdie on the par-3 16th, but he's now a long shot to make the cut Friday.

"I would hope it would be lengthened, personally, to take away certain players being able to cut off a lot of the hole and require pretty much everyone to hit it around the same line", he said.

"Tiger says, 'Phil, two to one.' And he never played him again the rest of the week", Nicklaus said with a laugh. "For that to happen, it was just unbelievable". Jack Nicklaus is as competitive as they come - and of course he'd love to sneak his drive past Player's - but we're not anxious about his launch angle. Judging by his swing, and his club-twirl game, Gary looks like a player, but not even he could have imagined pulling this off.

He said: "What I did doesn't make any difference to me. I mean what a day".

After spinning his ball back into the cup from distance, Finau ran up the fairway with arms aloft and then turned to jog backwards when he rolled his left ankle and collapsed to the turf.
