A hole in one is certainly cause for celebration, but Tony Finau may have done himself some damage on the eve of the Masters.

Finau followed Dylan Frittelli in making an ace at the traditional par-three contest 24 hours before the start of the iconic tournament at Augusta on Wednesday.

The world number 34 celebrated wildly, running down towards the green, but rolled his left ankle badly in the process.

With his ankle in a seemingly unnatural position, a crouching Finau then appeared to pop the joint back into its socket.

It remains to be seen whether the problem will affect his ability to tee off on Thursday, with Finau due to get started alongside Bernhard Langer and Yuta Ikeda at 12:43 local time.
