Ted Potter Jr. held off Matt Kuchar in the second hole of a sudden-death playoff to win the 2013 Masters Tournament's Par-3 Contest on Wednesday.

The prelude to the tournament at Augusta National Golf Course ended with a five-way tie between Potter Jr., Kuchar, Phil Mickelson, Ernie Els and Nick Watney.

Els and Watney decided against competing in the playoff, according to The Augusta Chronicle. Meanwhile, Mickelson fell out of the running when he settled for par on the first playoff hole. Kuchar nearly got a hole-in-one on his tee shot, but Potter Jr. remained alive by nailing a 40-foot putt to birdie and take the playoff to a second hole.

Potter Jr. birdied the deciding hole but Kuchar settled for par after missing a 15-foot putt.

History is now working against Potter Jr. as no golfer has won both the Par-3 Contest and the main event.
