The Masters Par-3 tournament is our guilty pleasure. But if you were given the opportunity to caddie for a golfer of your choice, who would you pick?
The Masters is almost upon us again, and we can't wait for the action to begin, including the annual Par-3 Championship.
Last year was an absolute cracker, with a record number of hole-in-ones. Perhaps the best part of the cursed tournament however (no winner has ever gone on to claim the green jacket), is getting a rare glimpse at the players' caddies. Will Sergio Garcia's new fiance get in on the action? Will One Direction's Niall Horan again loop for Rory McIlroy? Will Lydia Ko put in another appearance? We can't wait to find out.
But if you were offered the opportunity to caddie at the renowned event, which player would you choose?
Do we really need to explain why?
He may be well past his prime but Woods will still be the most in demand golfer at the Masters. That is, if he manages to get fit in time to tee it up next week. With a habit of last minute withdrawals and the former World No.1 alluding to the fact that he won't be fit, his appearance is almost as unlikely as our chance of pulling on the white overalls. Still, we can dream.
The Spaniard is without doubt the next big thing on tour. Rahm might not be pulling off any 430-yard drives on Augusta's immaculately maintained par-3 course, as he did at the final of last week's Dell World Matchplay Championship, but you wouldn't put it past the youngster to pull of something spectacular.

Whether it's tales of Seve, the Ryder Cup or his two Green Jackets, there's few golfers whose brains we'd rather pick. It's hard to think you'd walk off the course with Ollie without a smile on your face.
Ok, Bubba Watson isn't renowned as the nicest guy on tour but with his insane ball-striking and quirky character, we certainly wouldn't turn down a caddying request from the two-time champion. The Watsons made it a truly family affair last year with his wife and son, Caleb, on the bag.
An absolute legend, few players have transcended the game like Gary Player. The South African, who will be hitting the ceremonial tee shot next week, scored an ace at his annual appearance at the par-3 contest last year. We wouldn't put it past him to do so again.
