For the first time in Masters history, the traditional par-3 contest will be televised. For those who didn’t know, Augusta National Golf Club has a par-3 course as well as the big boy course. Since 1960 there’s been a par-3 tournament which is held the Wednesday of Masters week. For the gazillionth time mentioned, no par-3 contest winner has ever gone on to win the Masters tournament.

The first ever coverage of the par-3 will be on ESPN from 3-5pm ET. Yes, I know. I just can’t wait to hear the ESPN announcers butcher this with their tired and no longer entertaining form of broadcasting. I can’t wait to hear the announcers come up with their lame old “names” for the players like Roger “Chocolate” Maltbe. My gag reflex is already in action.

I have a better idea. I think I’ll power up my iTunes library and turn the TV sound off during this broadcast! Heavy metal and golf. What a great combo!
