Who would be willing to don an Augusta National white jumpsuit and caddie at the Masters Par 3 Contest?

Or perhaps the better question would be who wouldn’t be willing to do so? It’s become a family affair on the Wednesday before the Masters, the calm before the storm, with wives and girlfriends, children and grandchildren among those serving as caddies.

If the site of toddlers in their miniature jumpsuits tending a flagstick doesn’t bring a smile to your face, well, we simply can’t be friends.

Through the years, celebrities such as tennis stars Chris Evert, Caroline Wozniacki and Andy Roddick, NFL QB Matt Ryan, musician Niall Horan and NBA Hall of Famer David Robinson have been among those toting bags.

The Par 3 Contest, which is scheduled for April 5, dates back to 1960 when Sam Snead claimed the title.
