Woods driving well, birdies 3rd hole at Masters

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

After all three players hit their tee shots, Nicklaus' grandson took a shot at the ninth hole... and aced it.

"After I birdied the first four holes, I thought it would be really neat to win the Par-3, " said Watson, who played the last of his 43 Masters in 2016.

Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player were given a rousing ovation when they got the 82nd edition of the Masters underway at Augusta on Thursday.

Par-three hole-in-one joy was not so much fun for Tony Finau, whose Masters debut is in jeopardy after he suffered an ankle injury when celebrating his ace.

One of the great traditions in the Masters Par 3 Contest is players letting loved ones play a shot in front of the massive galleries. The 78-year-old Nicklaus finished tied for fourth at 4-under par.

"They talked all the way out, they got to their cabin, there was a ping pong table in the cabin, and Phil says, 'Hey Tiger, how about a game of ping pong'".

Law enforcement agencies reached the site of the incident soon after the incident and shifted the bodies to Civil Hospital. The family, from Punjab province, were in the capital of Balochistan province to visit relatives for Easter.

As Nicklaus and Player walked off the tee, two spotters darted out to grab their tee shots from the fairway; Austin Cook, Ted Potter, Jr. and Wesley Bryan had the 8:30 tee time.

"You want the best for your grandkids", Nicklaus said. Also in the playing group was golfing legends Tom Watson and Gary Player, who knew right away it was going to be a special shot.

"Since I'm not playing in the tournament, I thought, 'Let's go for it this year, '" Watson said afterward.

"To watch the kid knock in a hole in one on the biggest venue in the world, wow". To have that happen is unbelievable.

Ridley said the opening two rounds would be held at Champions Retreat in Augusta, with the final round moving to Augusta National on Saturday, April 9, extending the week at the Masters.

He said: "What I did doesn't make any difference to me". I mean, he made a move on it.
