The Par Three contest on the eve of the Masters will not take place this year, organisers have confirmed.
The Par Three contest traditionally takes place on the eve of the first round at Augusta National and offers competitors the opportunity to have some fun before the action gets underway the following day.
The 2020 Masters was rescheduled for November 12-15 due to Coronavirus pandemic but no spectators will be permitted at Augusta National due to the ongoing situation. As a result officials have decided to cancel the Par 3 contest.
It is hoped the event can return in 2021.
"The fun and excitement of watching Masters competitors with their friends and family is what makes the Par Three Contest such a special part of Masters week," Augusta chairman Fred Ridley explained.
"We know that experience could not have been replicated without guests and patrons at Augusta National, and we eagerly anticipate the opportunity to bring back this signature tradition."
