Finau finished the last two holes with a limp.

For those of you who say golfers aren't tough, we present to you Tony Finau as a rebuttal.

The 28-year-old quickly popped the ankle back in - look away in the video below if you're squeamish - before gingerly limping back down the fairway.

Tony Finau is a rising star in golf, and he's playing his first Masters this week.

On the seventh hole, Finau, ranked 34th in the world, flew his ball to the back of the green, and it spun back into the hole.

"Crazy day. Thanks for thoughts of concern, messages and prayers from all".

X-rays on his ankle were negative, but he will have an MRI on Thursday morning. He's expected to begin play at 12:43 p.m. Thursday.

By late morning, Finau was on the practice range and appeared to be testing the left ankle, carefully working it back and forth, before hitting easy wedges.

Augusta National went almost 80 years before having female members.

Many punters have been quick to back the Masters hopeful after his sensational Par-3 performance. "I've got a few tears".

But there were gasps of horror on the 7th hole when he stumbled and fell awkwardly, with live TV pictures showing his ankle pop out of his golf shoe. But then the PGA Tour's longest driver immediately started taking advantage of Augusta National's four par-5 holes.
