Augusta National Golf Club -

May the best man win – was the motto Wednesday morning as golf fans tried to secure their seat for the Par 3 contest during Masters week.  WJBF News Channel 6's Barclay Bishop was able to grab one patron before he got too far.  Justin Riggle, traveled all the way from Lancaster, Pennsylvania, for his first ever trip to Augusta - which makes for his first Par 3 experience.  He said he was most excited to see Keegan Bradley and Bubba Watson - but just having the chance to walk onto the sacred grounds, he said was good enough for him.

"Expectations for today, I try and set the bar as low as possible because I'm going to be overwhelmed, but in terms of the history of the event I'm just excited to be here and finally have an opportunity to watch it," said Justin Riggle, traveling to Augusta from Lancaster, PA."

When Riggle was asked what he wants to take away from his first Par 3 experience, he laughed and said, "A better short game!"
