Jimmy Walker clearly isn't one for superstition.

He's taken out the traditional Masters par-3 contest at Augusta, a day out from the tournament proper beginning.

Walker shot a course record eight-under 19, including a hole in one on the second hole.

The previous record was 20.


There were nine aces in total during the relaxed tune-up, including veteran Gary Player.

No player has even won the par-3 contest and the Masters in the same year.
