Tom Watson rolled back the years at The Masters on Wednesday, going round Augusta's Par 3 course in just 21 shots to become the oldest victor in history at 68 years old.
The Watson Watch was officially on when he birdied four of the five holes playing alongside two other giants of the game: Gary Player and Jack Nicklaus, who shot a sporty four-under of his own to tie for third. But on Wednesday at the Masters Par 3 contest, it was his 15-year-old grandson, Gary Nicklaus, who stole the show, hitting a hole-in-one on the final hole.
Gary was caddying for his grandfather when he took a shot on the ninth and final hole.
After a swing that gave the television audience the satisfying sound of a ball well-hit, Nicklaus' ball cleared the water and began a friendly roll towards the hole.
"What I did compared to that doesn't matter, " Nicklaus said through tears.
He later revealed that he had predicted the hole-in-one in advance.
Watson previously won the Par 3 Contest in 1982 and becomes the oldest victor in the tournament's history.
Since the Par 3 event event started in 1960, no victor of it has ever gone on to triumph in the main event four days later. But watching your grandson do something special, I have a few tears. "To watch the kid knock in a hole-in-one on the biggest venue in the world, wow. What a day. It's one I'll never forget". "I mean what a day". "For that to happen was just unbelievable".
