AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) -- Jack Nicklaus might be playing at the Masters for the next decade or two -- in the Par 3 Tournament.
Nicklaus says he used hi grandson Charlie caddie for him a couple of years ago in the Par 3. Being a believer in equal opporunity, now the Golden Bear has other grandchildren to consider.
Nicklaus stopped playing the Masters in 2005, another reason he can play in the Par 3. The six-time champion conceded to being superstitious, well aware that no one ever won the Masters after winning the Par 3 Tournament.
He also said it cut into his preparations in the days when he was competitive. He said he had so much energy focused on wanting to win the Masters that the Par 3 a distraction and not something he wanted to do.
