Organizers have confirmed that the Par Three contest on the eve of the Masters has been cancelled due to no patrons. Matt Wallace was scheduled to defend the title he won on the Wednesday of Masters week almost 18 months ago, when he denied Sandy Lyle a record third victory in the event, 21 years after his second.

“The fun and excitement of watching Masters competitors with their friends and family are what makes the Par Three Contest such a special part of Masters week.” Augusta chairman Fred Ridley said. “We know that experience could not have been replicated without guests and patrons at Augusta National, and we eagerly anticipate the opportunity to bring back this signature tradition.”

“Given the circumstances brought about by the pandemic, the delivery of quality content is as important as ever to the storytelling of the Master’s Tournament,” he added. “While we will dearly miss our patrons at Augusta National this fall, we are excited to showcase what promises to be a truly memorable Masters in a variety of ways for viewers around the world.”
