If you thought Caroline Wozniacki's pink hair raised a few eyebrows then you should watch her drain a 30ft putt on the notoriously difficult greens at Augusta National.

The Danish tennis player was caddying for her fiance Rory McIlroy during the annual Par 3 contest ahead of the US Master last night.

Her beau helped her line up the putt on the ninth hole but the former world number one tennis player took it from there and made no mistake.

Given the fact that the putt was downhill, it took a very delicate touch from the Dane to control the speed and direction and McIlroy will be hoping his putter catches fire like that today.

Rory McIlroy is a 14/1 favourite to land the Masters and end a 15-year wait for a European to claim the coveted green jacket in Butler's Cabin on Sunday evening.

Most players treat the Par 3 tournament as light relief and invite family or friends to act as their caddies, including the 'Big Three' of Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer and Gary Player, who would be back together to hit ceremonial drives as honorary starters for the tournament proper on Thursday.

American Ryan Moore has no qualms about carrying the "curse" of the par-three champion into the 78th US Masters after winning the traditional pre-tournament contest last night. No player has won the tournament and gone on to win the Masters

Here's the video of Wozniacki's fabulous putt at the ninth:

It certainly beats her effort from last year...
