Masters Par 3: Kids keeping it interesting at Augusta National

Augusta National loves the kids.

Even with Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, and Gary Player all playing together, the kids continue to be the highlight of Wednesday's Par-3 Contest at Augusta National. Robert Garrigus' son set the bar pretty high early on in the coverage, but nearly every group features multiple kids doing cute things. Here's Luke Donald's daughter draining a lengthy putt, with the help from her father. But the best part is the waddle across the green (hover to animate):


While the only hole-in-one so far has come from Nick Watney, there have been kids draining their putts on every green. Bo Van Pelt's child, however, missed a shorty on their final green while his daughters performed cartwheels for the crowd along the banks of the pond:


A cruel lipout, but thanks to the kids for keeping this thing interesting.
