Tony Finau will attempt to play The Masters despite dislocating his ankle

GETTYFinau continued to celebrate with his family despite the fall

Finau tested his ankle on the range and made a decision to play Round 1.

That's exactly what happened to USA professional golfer Tony Finau at the 2018 Masters par three contest on Wednesday 4th April, just one day before the main tournament is due to begin. Weirdly, it looks like he pops it back into place while he's laying on the ground, before getting back up and walking it off. Nothing broken, but he had a 12:43 p.m. tee time Thursday he wouldn't want to miss. Doctors diagnosed a dislocated ankle but no major damage.

After X-rays at a hospital didn't show a break, Finau was trying to keep the swelling down, the Golf Channel reported.

Describing Wednesday as a "crazy day", Finau tweeted his thanks that night to well-wishers for their concern.

Trending today on KRON4's Morning Buzz, Tiger at the Masters, Tony Finau wrecks his ankle and Bubba Watson makes a trick shot. Notably, Finau's driving ability is as good as any golfer on tour.

Hopefully his injury doesn't keep him from playing in The Masters.

Many punters have been quick to back the Masters hopeful after his sensational Par-3 performance.

Day received a free drop as near the incident as possible and proceeded to bogey the par-four initial. "I always wear a green shirt on Sundays, and I have in mind a shade that would go well with a green jacket".

But there were gasps of horror on the 7th hole when he stumbled and fell awkwardly, with live TV pictures showing his ankle pop out of his golf shoe.
