Ryan Moore Wins Par-3 Contest Before Start of Masters Tournament

April 10 (Bloomberg) -- Ryan Moore won the Masters Tournament’s annual par-3 contest with a 6-under 21 score, a day before the start of golf’s first major event of the season.

Moore, a 31-year-old American and a three-time U.S. PGA Tour winner, finished two shots ahead of Masters rookie Kevin Stadler and 1979 champion Fuzzy Zoeller.

Four players, including two-time Masters winner Bernhard Langer, tied for third yesterday at 3 under.

The par-3 tournament is played over nine holes on the short course at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia. No player has gone on to win the Masters after a victory in the par-3 contest, which began in 1960.

“I don’t believe in any of that other stuff about, you know, the curse or whatever,” Moore told reporters. “I mean, the reality is the odds of winning both are not very high.”
