Gary got tapped to caddie for Jack at this year's event, and on the final hole of the Par-3 course at Augusta National, Jack let Gary take dead aim - and he did not let him down!

Finau then proceeded to sprint towards the hole in celebration.

The 2018 Masters Par 3 Contest on Wednesday was a whirlwind of emotions for Tony Finau.

He appeared to snap his ankle back into place and walked off gingerly. He played on for two holes following the dislocation.

The company's stock price has dropped by more than a quarter over the past three weeks, according to a WikiTribune analysis. The electric-car maker said it made 2,020 Model 3s in the past seven days, which falls short of its weekly target of 2,500.


Six-times Masters champion Nicklaus joined in the celebrations on the tee, along with playing partners Tom Watson and Gary Player, and had a tear in his eye as he hugged his grandson.

Watson's win, though, wasn't even the highlight of the festivities.

A tearful Nicklaus, who won 18 majors during his career, rated his grandson's ace the number one moment of his career. "I can't talk right now".

He later revealed that he had predicted the hole-in-one in advance. "I said, 'well I think you're going to make a hole-in-one".

Also left unanswered was how Pruitt came to rent a property tied to a lobbyist with business interests involving his agency. Pruitt actually paid a total of $6,100 over the six-month period he leased the condo, an average of about $1,000 a month.


But the day belonged to Watson, who retired from the tournament in 2016.

"I was aware [of the leaderboard] after I birdied the first four holes, " Watson said. And exactly zero times has the victor gone on to win the actual Masters Tournament.

"Seeing Tom at 68 putting the way he did was just a joy, and Jack at 78 shooting 4-under par, it was a day I'll never forget, " Player said.
