Phil Mickelson has mixed feelings about overtaking Jack Nicklaus as oldest Masters champion

Tony Finau aced a hole in the Masters Par-3 Contest on Wednesday.

Six-times Masters champion Nicklaus joined in the celebrations on the tee, along with playing partners Tom Watson and Gary Player, and had a tear in his eye as he hugged his grandson. But on Wednesday at the Masters Par 3 contest, it was his 15-year-old grandson, Gary Nicklaus, who stole the show, hitting a hole-in-one on the final hole.

Only 22 players posted official scores, with the majority of the competitors happy to have "No Score" next to their names after letting caddies and family members takes shots for them over some of the holes. That was his first hole-in-one.

But it was Englishman Fleetwood, 27, who looked set to win until two-time Masters victor Watson - 41 years his senior - pipped him to the title by shooting seven-under.

Springer leads off for Astros with homer
Verlander is now 10-1 in the regular season since being acquired by the Astros from Detroit in a trade-deadline deal on August 31. Hinch said he never got clarification on what the Rangers were looking for on the review of Odor's errant throw in the sixth.

Nicklaus finished on four under for the Par 3 Tournament, with Watson winning it outright on six under.

Since the Par 3 event event started in 1960, no victor of it has ever gone on to triumph in the main event four days later.

"Since I'm not playing in the tournament, I thought, 'Let's go for it this year, '" Watson said afterward. "Watching your grandson do something is pretty special", the 18-time major victor said. "What a day. It's one I'll never forget". "To watch the kid knock in a hole-in-one on the biggest venue in the world, wow". "For that to happen was just unbelievable".
