What is the Masters Par-3 Contest?

The Masters Par-3 Contest is an annual event that takes place the day before the start of the Masters.

As the name suggests, it is a contest played on a nine-hole, par-27 course, and is meant to serve as a warm-up for the main event.

The Par-3 Contest is a lighthearted competition that is open to all players in the Masters, as well as past champions and honorary invitees.

It is a popular event among players, who often invite family members and friends to caddy for them or even hit shots during the contest.

While the Par-3 Contest is not an official PGA Tour event and does not count towards players' official records, it is still highly regarded and is known for its relaxed, fun atmosphere.

The contest often features players dressing up in colourful outfits, hitting trick shots, and interacting with fans and spectators.

Interestingly, no player has ever won the Masters Par-3 Contest and gone on to win the actual Masters in the same year, leading some players to view it as a sort of "curse."

Despite this, the Par-3 Contest remains a beloved tradition at Augusta National and a fun way for players to ease into the intensity of the Masters. 

What is the Masters Champions Dinner?

The Master Champions dinner is a traditional event held the Tuesday before the tournament begins, where the previous year's champion selects the menu for the current year's dinner.

The tradition started in 1952 when defending champion Ben Hogan hosted the first champions' dinner.

The menu usually features dishes that reflect the champion's personal tastes or cultural background.

For example, in 2021, the defending champion Dustin Johnson selected a menu that included pigs in a blanket and lobster and corn fritters as appetizers, filet mignon and sea bass as entrees, and peach cobbler and apple pie as desserts.

The dinner is a private event, attended only by the past champions of the Masters, who are also members of Augusta National Golf Club.

It is considered an exclusive and prestigious event, and it is one of the many traditions that make the Masters tournament so unique.

What did Scottie Scheffler serve for the 2023 dinner?

  • Cheeseburger sliders (served Scottie-style)
  • Firecracker shrimp.
  • Tortilla soup.
  • Texas ribeye steak or blackened redfish.
  • Warm chocolate chip skillet cookie.

What is the weather forecast?

Thursday's forecast looked clear in the morning, but afternoon tee times could see thunderstorms.

The course is calling for a 40 per cent chance of scattered storms in the afternoons, with high temperatures of 84 degrees and 7-14 mph winds.
