Bubba Watson wedge-putt in Masters Par 3 Contest is, well, ridiculous

Published on

Masters-week Wednesday is one of the most fun days of the year in golf. And it's all because of the Par 3 Contest.

In the contest, you're almost sure to see a hole-in-one and usually more than one -- there have been 93 total... make that 94 since Dylan Frittelli made one as we were posting this -- and a record nine in 2016.

But, you're not always going to see something like this...

Check out two-time Masters champ Bubba Watson as he was playing the seventh hole with Webb Simpson and Wesley Bryan.

Watson faced about a 3-foot putt, but -- with a wedge -- opted for the scenic route:

How about that? And shaking his playing partner hands for good measure, while the ball is still rolling!
