Tony Finau and Jack Nicklaus grandson star in Masters par three

Finau dislocated his left ankle celebrating a hole-in-one in Wednesday's Par-3 competition, but managed to play with the injury all weekend.

Defending champion Sergio Garcia shot himself out of tournament at the 15th hole, where he dumped five straight balls into the water.

At the conclusion of play, Finau shared a photo of his injured ankle.

Finau played well at the 82nd edition of the tournament, carding rounds of 68, 74, 73 and 66 to tie for 10th place.

He made birdie at the par-3 No. 12 hole he when he hit it within 10 feet. Charley Hoffman topped him with a hole-in-one. His left ankle gave out from underneath his leg and he fell to the ground. Hoffman ran a few steps down the fairway, but his celebration was more subdued than the one after the ace that caused Finau's injury. Top 10 in my debut!

That showing in his PGA Tour rookie season was impressive, but the toughness he displayed in the Masters topped the performance at Whistling Straits in Wisconsin. He finished with a 13, equaling the record for the highest score ever on a Masters hole.

Finau was worn out Sunday evening, having walked 72 holes up and down the hills of Augusta National on an ankle he predicted would be "yellow and purple". - Spieth, whose bid for a second straight green jacket in 2016 ended with a Sunday collapse on the back side.
