The par three competition at The Masters is always a sight to see and this year’s pre-tournament exhibition was no exception.

Golf legends Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player and Tom Watson put on a show and a caddy made a hole-in-one. But perhaps the coolest thing to happen all afternoon was when Justin Thomas brought a fan out on to the green and let the fan sink his birdie putt for him.

After knocking it close to the hole off the tee, Thomas decided to pull a young fan from the gallery and invited him onto the green to lend a hand. After they young boy knocked the birdie putt in, Thomas signed the ball and sent him on his way.

That young fan may not realize how big of a deal that was, but he just sunk a birdie putt at Augusta National Golf Course.

Once again, the par three competition did not disappoint on the eve of the opening round of The Masters.
