The Masters Tournament Par-3 Contest is arguably the most underrated part of Masters Week. From funny moments with little kids, to WAGs caddying for their significant others, at least a handful of hole-in-one shots – its a blast. While this year’s Masters Par-3 Contest has been a blast so far, one player had a roller coaster of emotions in about a 30-second span.
Tony Finau (+12500 to win), ranked 34th in the world, hit a perfect tee shot on the 7th hole of the Par-3 Contest… a hole-in-one. And how do you react to an ace at the PGA’s most fun event? You go HAM!
Unfortunately, Tony got after it a little too hard… he rolled the hell out of his ankle in what looked to be a potentially serious injury. Tony jumped, landed on his ankle, grabbed it… then in the most disgustingly casual manner, Tony POPPED HIS ANKLE BACK INTO PLACE LIKE A K’NEX SET.
As far as golf injuries go, this is pretty damn gruesome… take a look:
It’s not even the injury that makes your stomach want to turn, it’s the way he just popped it back into place like it wasn’t a big deal.
This is uncomfortably casual:
“No big deal, guys. I broke my ankle but that happens all the time.” – Tony Finau, probably.
Of course, the fine folks on Twitter has some reactions to share about Tony’s embarrassing and gross celebration/injury.
Tony went on to finish his round in the Par-3 Contest without any apparent issues but he better put ice on that ankle until tee off because a swollen ankle could really give him problems on the course tomorrow. Finau, who played basketball in high school and is cousins with Jabari Parker of the Milwaukee Bucks, might want to wear high tops next time he plans to get a hole-in-one.
