We won’t get new Masters action this week, because the coronavirus pandemic has caused the postponement of the 84th playing until November. So we are left only with years past. But the old stuff, well, that’s a pretty good alternative.

From Tiger Woods and Jack Nicklaus to Bubba Watson and Adam Scott, we rewind to some of the greatest Masters moments ever.

Here is Wednesday’s lineup across ESPN:

1:30 p.m. ET on ESPN: 2018 Par 3 Contest. Go ahead, try to watch this without crying. Jack Nicklaus, Tom Watson and Gary Player wandered around the picture-perfect Par 3 course at Augusta National. On the ninth tee, Nicklaus stepped aside and let his grandson, Gary, take a swing. Here’s what happened next

3-3:30 p.m. ET on ESPN’s Twitter handle, ESPN App and YouTube: Masters Memories show with Michael Collins. He talks with Gary Nicklaus II, who was on the bag for one of the more memorable moments in Masters history. He recalls what it was like the week his father turned back the clock.

3:30 p.m. ET on ESPN: Replay of the final round of the 1986 Masters. No player has more green jackets than Jack Nicklaus. And his last one, at age 46, is among the greatest performances in the history of the tournament.
