The best pictures from Wednesday at Augusta National

It was a family affair at the Par 3 Contest on Wednesday and the action was captured one snapshot at a time.

Despite being less than 24 hours away from the start of the first major championship of the season, the atmosphere was light and jovial at Augusta National on Wednesday. That is because it was the day of the Par 3 Contest where kids wearing caddie jumpsuits take their hacks and often steal the show.

The family atmosphere combined with the pristine condition of Augusta National made for some great pictures. Here are some of the best photos from Wednesday at Augusta National.
