It's the one part of Masters week where many players would just as soon not come out on top.

But history aside, they're still happy to participate in the Par 3 contest, traditionally held on the day prior to the first round of the Masters.

You can watch the contest on TSN, TSN.ca, iPhone, and iPad on Wednesday beginning at 3pm et/Noon pt.

This year's event is the 55th stroke play competition on Augusta National's nine-hole Par 3 course, and no winner of the contest has ever gone on to win the Green Jacket.

The nine-hole course is a separate layout from the 18-hole Augusta National Course. Played over DeSoto Springs Pond and Ike's Pond, the nine-hole track measures 1,060 yards and is par 27. The course record there is 20, seven under par.

Last year, Ted Potter Jr. captured the Par 3 contest over Matt Kuchar and Phil Mickelson. Potter missed the cut at the 2013 Masters and did not qualify for this year's event.

You can watch the TSN Masters Preview Show immediately following the Par 3 contest at 5pm et/2pm pt.
