"It's nothing short of a miracle for me". Au, contraire! Finau finished the round at 4-under 68, placing him right near the top of the leaderboard alongside Jordan Spieth. "Kind of a scary moment for me because I kind of twisted my ankle", Finau said about the events on Wednesday.
Nevertheless, it could be one of the stories of the weekend if Finau can recover in time. He was diagnosed with a high ankle sprain.
"My story's quite insane", said Finau, who has watched the video of his freak injury, and even was able to crack a laugh.
Finau, a 125/1 shot for The Masters this week, is now having an X-Ray and will attempt to still compete.
Meanwhile, Jack Nicklaus' grandson, Gary, also got lucky in the par 3 tournament and landed a hole-in-one.
"I understood what happened".
However, as he turned to run backwards, Finau rolled his ankle and fell to the ground. I knew that it was there.

The Justice Department sued California just last month over Sanctuary State Laws. The lawsuit was filed Tuesday in Manhattan federal court.
That solved an immediate problem; the bigger issue was structural damage.
The freak injury puts Finau's status for the Masters in question, but Finau is still hoping to play.
An early range visit this morning got some things checked over and, nearly immediately, he said he felt fine.
The 28-year-old, who is taking part in his first Masters, did finish the final two holes but was limping throughout and declined to speak to reporters afterwards.
Not surprising: Finau birdied all four par-5s.
