Tony Finau wrecks his ankle at the Masters

Finau two off the lead at Masters: 'nothing short of a miracle' after dislocating ankle

Finau appeared to pop the ankle back into place before standing and limping noticeably back toward the tee box.

Finau badly twisted his left ankle as he celebrated a hole-in-one in the exhibition event and had to go to hospital for X-rays.

He ended up withdrawing from the Par 3 contest. "And that was incredible to receive, just because I had I grew up watching him".

When he awakened Thursday morning, with his ankle hurting and knowing he needed an MRI exam to be cleared to play, Finau might have taken any score he could get.

Tiger Woods has his first birdie at the Masters in almost three years.

Tony Finau is scheduled to make his Masters debut on Thursday.

Less than 24 hours after suffering a freaky injury in the Par 3 contest on the eve of the Masters, Tony Finau has been cleared to tee off on Thursday afternoon.

"I was able to stay in the moment". A one-time PGA Tour victor, Finau is playing in his first Masters.

After bogeying the first hole, Finau birdied holes 2, 4, 8, 9, 13 and 15 to end in the best position he's ever had after any round in a major championship. "Obviously how exciting he was, but someone with a bit of color playing this game".

"I hit a flawless shot, I got very excited when it went in, adrenaline took in and I started running". He avoided falling into last place after the first day but managed to set a record for highest score on the hole in tournament history.
