Every year, on the Wednesday before the Masters actually begins, they have a fun, light-hearted Par 3 Contest. In fact, “of all the traditions at the Masters, none is more endearing than the annual Par 3 Contest,” says the Masters’ official website. So you know it’s good.
What makes it so “endearing,” though? Well, you see, the “beloved event…is above all a family affair. Wives and girlfriends, children and grandchildren, nieces and nephews—all happily serve as caddies,” the Masters website explains. “The sight of toddlers, outfitted in miniature Augusta National jumpsuits, toting a light bag or tending a flagstick more than twice their height brings smiles to onlookers near and far.”
Awwwww, that’s so…wait a minute—what was that about wives and girlfriends? Did they say the wives and girlfriends are at the Par 3 Contest? Isn’t Paulina Gretzky dating Dustin Johnson? And isn’t Caroline Wozniacki still dating Rory McIlroy? And, well, aren’t there a bunch of other dudes on the PGA Tour with crazy hot WAGs as well?
The answer to all these questions is yes. So it’s nice that the folks who run the Masters act like everyone loves seeing the cute little tykes running around and holding stuff, but obviously, the real reason people love the Par 3 Contest is the WAGs. That’s why you like it, isn’t it?
