2012 Masters: Par 3 Contest Cancelled Due To Inclement Weather

Unfortunately for golf fans, the 2012 Masters Par 3 tournament has been cancelled because of thunderstorms. Padraig Harrington and Jonathan Byrd were declared the winners of the tournament, as they both shared the lead at five under par before the tournament was cancelled.

Byrd was lucky enough to beat the sirens, as he tapped in his birdie putt on the ninth and final hole just as the sirens began to sound to suspend play. That putt tied Byrd with Harrington and allowed him to share the Par 3 title.

Adam Scott, Webb Simpson and Jerry Pate finished in a three way tie for second place at four under par. Unfortunately for Pate, he was only through the first five holes before play was cancelled.

Fan favorite Phil Mickelson finished tied for sixth with Kelly Kraft. Mickelson and Kraft both were three under par. A full leaderboard can be found at the Masters' official website.
