Jack Nicklaus Will No Longer Play Masters Par-3 Contest

The Masters Par-3 contest is returning to the legendary tournament this year after a two-year absence due to covid. 

Sadly, Jack Nicklaus, now 82, will no longer be playing in the famous and fun contest, according to a report from Golfweek. 

“I’m done with the Par 3, but toward the end of my career, I used to play every year. But I just can’t play anymore,” Nicklaus told Golfweek in an interview about the Masters.

Nicklaus played in the par-3 contest pretty much every year with his grandson, Gary Player, Arnold Palmer, Tom Watson and or some combination of all of those players. 

However, Nicklaus will still hit the opening tee shot on Thursday morning alongside Player and Watson. 

The Masters tournament is set to begin on Thursday, April 7.
