One of the highlights of Masters Wednesday is the Par 3 contest, and the highlight of this year’s contest was The Big Three — Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player — playing together as a threesome. Arnie and Jack were the honorary starters on Thursday morning, and I don’t think it will be long (a year or two at the most in my opinion) before Gary joins them to make the official starters a threesome.
My friends and I caught up with them at the 5th green on the Par 3 course, and followed them through the 7th tee. Below are some photos and two videos we shot as they were playing holes 5, 6 and 7 (thanks again to Drew, John and Tim for their photos that I added to mine below).
