Tony Finau 'dislocates' ankle after ace

Tony Finau

While celebrating, Finau had a cringe-worthy incident.

In Tony Finau's case, it was a dislocated ankle after he was joyously jumping around on the way to the green at Augusta National on Wednesday.

U.S. golfer Tony Finau was competing in the annual Par-3 contest ahead of Thursday's Masters. Amazingly, he popped it back into place and is scheduled to play again today even though he sustained a high-ankle sprain.

The severity of the injury is unclear.

It was confirmed that the golfer dislocated his ankle before putting it back in place himself. X-rays tonight revealed no breaks.

American reporter Darren Rovell tweeted a picture of Finau's ankle wrapped in "new age tape". Thanks for thoughts of concerns, messages and prayers from all.

Finau, the world's 34th-ranked player, teed off at 12.43pm local time with two-time Masters champion Bernhard Langer and Yuta Ikeda.

He will still undergo an MRI on Thursday morning, and hopes to play if results are positive and swelling is under control.

Tom Watson won the contest, shooting 6-under PAR - one shot better than Tommy Fleetwood and Thomas Pieters.

For the Finau faithful, it was a frightening Wednesday at Augusta National and now likely a nervous wait overnight. Finau would also add a bonus 35-footer for birdie at the par-4 ninth.

This is Finau's first Masters.
