Contest Winners by Year

First played in 1960 and won that year by Sam Snead, the Par 3 Contest has become a Wednesday tradition at the Masters. The Par 3 course was designed in 1958 by architect George Cobb and Clifford Roberts. Tournament participants and non-competing past champions are invited to participate in the Contest. The nine-hole course is par 27, 1,060 yards and played over DeSoto Springs Pond and Ike's Pond. In 1987, the current hole Nos. 8 and 9 were added over Ike's Pond, eliminating hole Nos. 1 and 2 of the original course from Wednesday competition. In the history of the Contest, there have been 90 holes-in-one made, a record nine in 2016. No Par 3 Contest winner has won the Masters the same year as his short-course victory. There have been 19 sudden death playoffs. Jimmy Walker set the course record of 19 in 2016.



Listed below is each year's winner and score, and the year(s) he won the Masters.
