Golfer dislocates ankle while celebrating hole-in-one at 2018 Masters

Finau, ranked No. 32 in the world, appeared to pop the ankle back into place before standing and limping noticeably back toward the tee box. If this lead holds it will be his fifth career first-round lead/co-lead on the PGA TOUR, first since this year's Genesis Open.

Finau finished the last two holes with a limp.

But the golfer was set to undergo an MRI scan on Thursday morning to assess any further damage.

The 28-year-old American, a trendy sleeper pick in this weekend's Masters field, just destroyed his ankle celebrating during the annual Par-3 event at Augusta National. He's expected to begin play at 12:43 p.m. Thursday. It was easy for me to stay in the moment, and I think it masked the pressure a little bit. He replied: "Crazy day".

Finau flew the back of the seventh green on the Par-3 course and spun it back into the hole for an ace. He's just the third green jacket owner to win the Par 3 Contest twice, joining Sandy Lyle and Sam Snead. "Thanks for thoughts of concern, messages and prayers from all".

Tony Finau pulled off a superhuman effort of gargantuan proportions to grab a share of second spot after the opening day of the Masters.
