Keeping with tradition: What makes Par 3 special?
In this edition of Golf Channel News Desk Presented by Callaway, George Savaricas and Tripp Isenhour discuss what makes the annual Par 3 Contest at Augusta National so special.Hello and welcome to the Golf Channel news desk presented by Callaway, I'm George Sanrikis along side Golf Channel analyst Trip Eisenhower. Our trip it's Wednesday of Masters Week. So you know what that means? It's the par three contest. You see a lot of family and friends out there either cattying or joining. The guys in the field. What makes the Par 3 contest such a special event? Well, traditions abound at Augusta National . In the age where sometimes traditions get downplayed a little bit, they get played exactly right at Augusta National . And the premium tradition that I love, along with the champions there and everything else is the Par 3 contest. Every tournament at Augusta they're not called tournaments. They're called parties. Michael Brie who worked there told me that every single party they have at Augusta National throughout the year has a par 3 component of it. So this is just keeping with the tradition of every other tournament that they have at Augusta National . And this one, of course. The patrons get so close. They're right up close with these stars of the game it's a time to let off some steam, it's a time to have fun. And hopefully, hopefully George, you don't win the par 3 contest As we know that no winner of the par 3 has gone on to win the ultimate championship. The Masters Tournament , and so you don't want to win, you want to play well but you, you know, shoot one or two under and just go on about your business. Do you think this event has raised in stature the last ten years or so? It seems like the average fan now has a better grasp of how special this is the Wednesday before the Master's. Yeah I it's always for the true Golf fan it's always been part of the story, it's a tremendous part of the story. But yes, to the general viewing public this is really part of the tournament we tell a great story here at the golf channel as part of the coverage today. So yes, it's grown in stature over the years but again, a tradition unlike any other. And that's the par three contest on Wednesday. That is definitely the case. Alright, for Tripp Isenhour, I'm George Savaricas. This is the Golf Channel News Desk presented by Callaway and continuing coverage .
