Tim Clark was your winner of the annual Par-3 contest at the Masters on yesterday. Which means that he has no chance of donning the green jacket this year. Why you ask? Well, no player has ever won the Masters and the Par-3 contest in the same year. Ever. But that may be the least of his problems.
What I’m about to list for you is the last three Par-3 contest winners and where they placed in the Masters that year.
- 2006 Ben Crane – Missed cut
- 2007 Mark O’Meara – Missed cut
- 2008 Rory Sabbatini – Missed cut
If there is one thing one can’t argue against it’s trends. And the trends say, Clark won’t be around for the weekend. So for all you Tim Clark fans, I hope you TiVo’d his performance in the Par-3 contest because you won’t be seeing much more of him this week.
