WATCH: Tony Finau makes Masters Par-3 Contest hole-in-one, slips, pops ankle back in place


Tony Finau had just made a beautiful ace on the seventh hole in the 2018 Masters Par-3 Contest.

He was celebrating with the Augusta National patrons, running down the tee box toward the green. He then turned to look at his wife and four kids, who were with him as caddies for the day. He slipped on the wet ground, and then he went down to a knee. It seemed like something was wrong, especially seeing Finau's left ankle.

And then Finau casually appeared to pop his ankle back into place and start walking back toward his family. He took a few steps before asking them to start walking toward him. It looked bad.

However, Finau didn't walk off the par-3 course, and he continued finishing up the Wednesday round.

It's not implausible Finau has dealt with shoving his ankle back into place before, coming from an athletic background of playing high-level basketball. There are a lot of rolled ankles on the basketball court, so he's almost certainly had to deal with a rolled ankle in the past.
