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!”
