  • Watch: Golfer Tony Finau Dislocates Ankle Celebrating Hole-In-One At Masters

Golfer Hurts Ankle Celebrating Hole-In-One At Masters Tony Finau started jumping up and down and then his ankle bucked and he collapsed on the green. But Tony Finau appeared to dislocate his ankle while celebrating a hole-in-one.

The 28-year-old quickly popped the ankle back in - look away in the video below if you're squeamish - before gingerly limping back down the fairway.

X-rays later showed it was not broken, with the American waiting on the results of an MRI scan before deciding whether to go ahead with the tournament.

Finau, ranked No. 32 in the world, is playing in his first Masters.

Finau quoted Lewis' post, and noted he is "optimistic" on his availability for his scheduled tee time at 12:43 p.m. "I celebrated a hole-in-one, and I had just rolled my ankle", he said in the understatement of the Masters to ESPN's Scott Van Pelt.

Augusta National went almost 80 years before having female members.

An early range visit this morning got some things checked over and, nearly immediately, he said he felt fine. So didn't sleep very much, thinking about how I was going to react when I woke up.
