Tony Finau 'dislocates' ankle after ace

Grant SmithApr 05, 2018

So excited was Finau that he took off in a dead sprint, first forward, then backward, and that's when it went wrong.

In a moment, a celebration turned into a scary moment for Salt Lake City native Tony Finau during the Masters Par-3 contest Wednesday in Augusta, Georgia.

However, as he turned to run backwards, Finau rolled his ankle and fell to the ground. Finau stayed down for a moment before appearing to snap his ankle back into place.

Finau was running down the middle of the fairway after hitting the shot, hands in the air with jubilation, when his Masters week took a turn.

Finau, despite the fall, obviously hopes to be playing Thursday.

It is understood the world number 34 required treatment following the completion of his round. He managed to finish his round, two holes total, without a noticeable limp.

Finau finished the nine hole par 3 course on one-under, five shots behind the 68-year-old victor, Tom Watson.

Jack Nicklaus' grandson Gary, did the family name proud with an ace of his own.
