VIDEO: Andy Roddick Gets Nautical During 2011 Masters Par 3 Contest

Top American tennis star Andy Roddick caddied for 2007 Masters champion Zach Johnson during Wednesday's Par 3 Contest at Augusta National. The racketeer (no?) also got a chance to take a cut, powering the ball to a watery grave despite Mike Tirico's assurance that Roddick is a member of the Austin Country Club:

"Take a deep breath, ball!" Golf is awesome. The Par 3 Contest was fun to watch because the players chattered at each other the whole time and the old guys grunted with old-guy aches the whole time.

The only joke I can think of making here is that the ball should've worn a swimsuit to the tee, just like Roddick's swimsuit model wife Brooklyn Decker! (Because it landed in the water.) That's a really terrible joke, of course, but I don't know a single thing about tennis. You'll have to help me out here.

Apparently Johnson and Roddick's agents set up the caddying arrangement. That's pretty cute!
