AUGUSTA, Ga.---People headed into the gates early today at the Augusta National. The early birds want to make sure they get the best spots for this afternoon's Par 3 contest, now in its 48th year on Masters Wednesday.
Lots of the fans are bringing their rain gear today, with those gray skies looking sort of ominous.
The Par 3 contest usually begins after 1 o'clock. All the Masters players are invited to play, but they don't have to.
The contest features pint-sized caddies and lots of interaction with fans. Last year's winner was Ben Crane.
