Tony Finau hurts himself celebrating hole-in-one

Tony Finau hurts himself celebrating hole-in-one

Following an ace in the par-3 contest, Finau sprained his ankle while celebrating.

However, as he turned to run backwards, Finau rolled his ankle and fell to the ground.

He charged off down the fairway in celebration but excitement quickly turned to concern as Finau stumbled with his left ankle buckling under him on Wednesday (Thursday NZT).

Finau finished the nine-hole contest 1-under par.

Finau is making his first appearance at the Masters.

Finau, ranked No. 34 in the world, ended up withdrawing from the event but stuck around for the final two holes.

With his ankle in a seemingly unnatural position, a crouching Finau then appeared to pop the joint back into its socket.

Call it the hole-in-one celebration gone wrong.

Asked afterward as he walked to the clubhouse at Augusta National how he felt, he only said, "I'm going to get it checked out". The streak will continue this year, as 68-year-old Tom Watson won the Par-3 and will not be playing in the Masters.
