Jack Nicklaus’ grandson Gary produced a magical moment in the pre-Masters par three tournament as he sank a hole-in-one amid joyous scenes at Augusta.

Former Masters champion Tom Watson won the traditional event that opens up Masters week and he was in a group alongside fellow golf legends Nicklaus and Gary Player when Nicklaus Jnr enjoyed a magical moment that produced raucous cheers from the huge crowds looking on.
