AUGUSTA, Ga. – Rory McIlroy played last week's Valero Texas Open to find more competitive "reps" before the year's first major. He'll enter one more competition before the Masters: the Par-3 Contest. Most Masters participants take part in the light-hearted affair on the tournament's eve – even Tiger Woods played the event earlier in his career – so it is not McIlroy's participation, but his caddie selection that will draw attention.

His girlfriend, tennis pro Caroline Wozniacki, will carry the handful of clubs necessary to navigate Augusta National's par-3 course.

Loved ones are usually the loopers on this event in which the competition is overshadowed by family fun. Most players don't post a score, letting their loved ones attempt tee shots on toddlers try to hole putts.

McIlroy has rallied with Wozniacki in exhibitions on her court. There is no word whether she'll participate in McIlroy's sport this time.
