The 28-year-old American, a trendy sleeper pick in this weekend's Masters field, just destroyed his ankle celebrating during the annual Par-3 event at Augusta National.

Garcia, who carded eagle the last time he played the hole en route to the 2017 Masters victory, was 2-over entering 15 and ended his day 9-over.

"My story's quite insane", said Finau, who has watched the video of his freak injury, and even was able to crack a laugh.

Reports in America suggest a Thursday morning MRI scan showed the Masters rookie had sustained a high-ankle sprain during the incident.

On Saturday, James wrote on Instagram that he is "humbled and grateful to be linked with the greats". But James said records aren't what motivates him.

Fans were shocked, surprised, and just a little bit nauseous after seeing Finau go from ecstasy to agony so quickly.

In a happier set of circumstances involving a hole-in-one, Gary Nicklaus - son of golf great Jack Nicklaus - hit a hole-in-one on the last hole of the Par 3 Contest. I knew that it was there.

That solved an immediate problem; the bigger issue was structural damage. I understood what happened, I celebrated, I was quite embarrassed.

As he watched his son save a par on No. 7, Kelepi Finau said the subject of playing Thursday was never in question, while retelling the story of how Tony overcame pneumonia to win the 2006 State Amateur.

"It's been pretty insane", Finau said. Augusta National is a very tough course to walk, so it will be worth monitoring the status of his ankle as the week progresses. From there, Finau battled commendably, sinking impressive putts for par at 17 and 18 to ensure he stayed atop the leaderboard.

He tees off at 5.43pm BST alongside Bernhard Langer and Yuta Ikeda.
