Ryan Moore wins Par-3 : Report & Pics

2014 04 4836080391

Masters betting has been the big topic of discussion at bunkered HQ for the last ten days and if you staked some money on Ryan Moore like our editor, you may well be cursing this morning after the classy American won the par-3 competition.


No winner of the Wednesday contest has ever gone on to win the Masters, but that doesn’t phase Moore, who enjoyed the fun family atmosphere that always surrounds the day.

“I’m one of those people, if I’m entering something, I’m trying to win it no matter what,” said Moore. “I don’t believe in any of that other stuff about, you know, the curse or whatever.

“I mean, the reality is the odds of winning both are not very high. So you know, just hasn’t happened yet. So obviously I’m happy to be the first person to break that.



“As much as anything it was just fun. I had my wife out there. I had my 17-month-old boy out there. I was chasing him, watching him try to jump in bunkers.”

That’s exactly what the par-3 competition is about for most players as they relax in the build-up to one of the most pressure filled weeks of the season.

One of the best moments of the day was Jason Day’s son Dash giving patrons high-fives after his dad holed a birdie putt.
