Today’s Masters Tournament Par-3 Contest was headlined by the legendary group of Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, and Tom Watson. Each Hall Of Fame golfer and previous Masters Champion had some family caddying for them, one of which was JackNicklaus’ 15-year-old grandson, Gary ‘GT’ Nicklaus.
Like many of the prior groups, the threesome had their family members hit a tee shot on the 9th and final hole. Well, GT Nicklaus stepped up to the tee box and hit a high tee shot with just enough backspin… just enough… to go in the hole.
Watch 15-year-old GT hit his first hole in one ever:
Afterward, Jack couldn’t hold back his emotions. Understandably, the 6-time Masters Champion was in tears as he reflected on the incredibly special moment with his family at a place that has been special to him and his legendary career.
Jack even went on to tweet about the hole-in-one and called it the most special day he’s had on the Augusta National golf course:
In addition to Jack declaring it a special moment, Gary Player sure loved seeing it happen for GT. Hear his phenomenal narration of the shot here:
Of course, seeing Jack overwhelmed with emotion gave every golf fan a the feels…
If this Par-3 Contest was any indication of what is ahead… we’re in for one hell of a Masters Week!
