Nick Faldo Reels In A Putt Like He’s Fishing At Masters Par 3 Contest

Perhaps Nick Faldo should pursue fishing’s highest honors when he has finished playing golf.

The three-time Masters champion sank a stunning putt Wednesday during the Masters Par 3 contest — a lighthearted event which serves as a warm-up for the real thing.

Faldo appeared to roll his putt criminally wide at No. 7 at Augusta National, but he knew something most didn’t: how to use the slope and reel them in.

Happy Gilmore would be proud. Bass pro fishermen everywhere would be proud.
