Wallace claims Par 3 success


Matt Wallace will be hoping history does not repeat itself after beating Sandy Lyle in the play-off to win the Par 3 Tournament on the eve of The Masters.

Lyle looked set to win the event for a third time after carding a five-under 22 on the nine-hole course , but a hole-in-one at the eighth allowed Wallace to join the Scot at the top of the leaderboard. He missed a birdie opportunity on the last hole to set up a play-off.

Nothing could separate the pair at the first two extra holes before Wallace took victory with a birdie on the eighth after coming within a couple of inches of another ace.

Worryingly for Wallace no player has won the Par 3 and the Masters in the same year but Wallace will be hoping to avoid the 'curse' this week.

"I wanted to hole that putt on the last and I didn't and then it went to a play-off and it got a little bit more serious than how the nine holes went. And I guess I just I wanted to win this, I want to break history somewhat," Wallace said.

Ireland's Shane Lowry was one of four players to enjoy a hole-in-one as he aced the second.
