Finau continued his round, with the injury not looking to be as severe as it looked.
Tony Finau said he was "optimistic" about being able to start in the Masters on Thursday after dislocating his left ankle while celebrating a hole-in-one during the Par-3 Tournament on Wednesday.
Luckily for Finau, he won't be (relatively) pressed for time, as he's slotted to go off the first hole at 12:43 p.m.
While taking part in Wednesday's Par 3 contest leading up to the 2018 Masters, the 28-year-old severely rolled his ankle after sinking a hole-in-one on the seventh hole. However, his inability to see where he was going may have caused Finau to have a misstep, and his left ankle buckled. It appears that while on a knee, Finau popped his ankle back into place. He managed to finish his round, two holes total, without a noticeable limp.
Nicklaus also played well, finishing in a tie for fourth, but it was his caddie - a.k.a. his grandson, Gary "G.T".
It was made even more extraordinary by the celebration. This is a special tournament.
