Tony Finau Sinks Hole-In-One, Snaps His Ankle While Celebrating, Then Pops It Back In

Tony Finau Sinks Hole-In-One, Snaps His Ankle While Celebrating, Then Pops It Back In

I've witnessed some ridiculous incidents on the golf course down the years - yes I'm talking to you John Mcveigh, the bloke who uses a 3-wood on every putting surface in Cumbria.

But American pro Tony Finau just took things to a 'hole' new level at Augusta National.

Finau, who is 34th in the world rankings, sank a magnificent hole-in-one on the seventh at the Masters Tournament Par-3 Contest to send thousands of fans into a state of shock.

Just moments after he produced one of the shots of the year, the 28-year-old sprinted down the centre of the fairway.

He proceeded to run forwards, backwards and side to side but as he turned to face the tee, he rolled his ankle and presumably dislocated the joint.

As you can see in the footage above, Finau falls to the ground and clutches his ankle before plucking up the courage to snap it back into place, as his children looked on.

Finau's upcoming Masters tournament must have flashed before his eyes after the tumble, but here's hoping he will be fine to continue in the coming days.

He briefly explained the situation at the Augusta National clubhouse later on in the day:

"I'm going to get it checked out." Finau said.

Finau's snapped ankle certainly caused a stir on social media. Here's how Twitter reacted to the gut-wrenching incident:





I think it's safe to say that you'll never see anything like this, ever again.

Here's hoping Mr Finau will make it to the Masters opener tomorrow.
