Golfer Tony Finau may have got a little too excited Wednesday when he celebrated a hole-in-one during the Par-3 Tournament at the Masters.
Finau’s ball landed on the back of the seventh green on the Par-3 course at Augusta National and spun back into the hole for a superb hole in one. Finau, 28, started to run up the course in celebration when he landed awkwardly on his left ankle.
You can clearly see Finau’s left ankle pop out of socket and with a quick knee to the ground and a little push – Finau popped the ankle back in place! I’d say this has happened to Finau before!

Finau wasn’t the only one with an incredible hole in one during the competition.
Jack Nicklaus’ grandson also made fireworks, while caddying for the six-time Masters winner.
