The younger Nicklaus, 15, had never made an ace before, and he did so to large cheers from the gallery and tears from his grandfather - the six-time victor of the Masters.

"I said to him about three days ago, 'Are you sure you want to hit a ball on 9?'" Jack Nicklaus asked.

The crowd went nuts for GT, kind of like they have for Jack all these years.

"To watch your grandson to that is special", said a still choked up Nicklaus said.

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. To have that happen is unbelievable.

Finau seeminly dislocated his ankle and then looked to pop it back in after he twisted it while running in celebration after sinking his tee shot for a hole in one of.

Player won at Augusta in 1961, 1974 and 1978, while the Nicklaus holds a record six Masters wins - in 1963, 1965, 1966, 1972, 1975 before a vintage performance in 1986.

He fell to the ground and then popped it back into place.


The previous oldest victor of the Par 3 Contest was Sam Sneed at 61 in 1974.

He did manage to walk off the course, saying only, "I'm going to get it checked out", as he headed into the clubhouse.

The 15-year-old was wearing his caddie bib when he approached his ball on the 135-yard hole.

"That was nerve-wracking", he said. "What a day. It's one I'll never forget".

He said: "What I did doesn't make any difference to me".

Garcia said he got the stains when he put his arm around one of the people working backstage.

The Augusta National Women's Amateur begins next year, a 54-hole event for top amateurs from around the world who will become the first women to play a tournament at the home of the Masters.
