Masters week always brings flare and drama unlike any other golf event in the world, and on Wednesday the excitement burst through the roof when a kid in a caddy's jumpsuit aced the final hole of the Par 3 Contest. 

The kid: Jack Nicklaus' grandson, Gary. Here's the shot

The amazing part is that he was caddying Nicklaus, who decided to let the 15-year-old take the last tee shot of the day. 

The Masters begins Thursday in Augusta, Georgia, and Tiger Woods and Jordan Spieth are favored to win with 10:1 odds, according to Sporting News
