Tony Finau 'dislocates' ankle after ace

Jack Nicklaus

The golfer's shot bounced off the green, got caught up in the wind and rolled right into the hole.

While running backwards on the green, Finau's ankle folded under him.

A year after Dustin Johnson's injury mishap, Tony Finau has put his own Masters in doubt after rolling his ankle during his hole in one celebration at the Par 3 competition.

THE ANNUAL Par-3 Contest took place at Augusta today ahead of the opening round of the 2018 Masters on Thursday.

Finau, with a slight limp, continued to play and finished the final two holes.

Nicklaus has been retired from golf for some time now, but is no stranger to making headlines at the Masters Par 3 contest.

Watch the magic moment below as three of the game's greats come together to celebrate the feat with Gary - a moment that brought record 18-time major champion Nicklaus to tears.

But Watson's victory wasn't the only excitement in the group: Jack needed a hole in one on the 9th to tie Watson, but wasn't able to.

"Since I'm not playing in the tournament, I thought, 'Let's go for it this year, '" he said afterward.

Watson previously won the Par 3 Contest in 1982 and becomes the oldest victor in the tournament's history. "What a day. It's one I'll never forget".

68-year-old Watson went on to become the oldest-ever victor - beating Tommy Fleetwood by one stroke thanks to six birdies from the nine holes.

"Seeing Tom at 68 putting the way he did was just a joy, and Jack at 78 shooting 4-under par, it was a day I'll never forget, " Player said.
