Finau 'optimistic' of playing in Masters despite dislocated ankle

Finau 'optimistic' of playing in Masters despite dislocated ankle

But after he was cleared to play following an MRI exam, Finau turned in one of the best rounds of his life.

For those of you who say golfers aren't tough, we present to you Tony Finau as a rebuttal. The 9-hole Par 3 course allows for a much looser, more fun atmosphere than does the seriousness of the Masters tournament itself.

Tony Finau is optimistic of making his Masters debut after he suffered a sickening injury during the pre-tournament par-three contest.

You've just nailed a hole-in-one at the Augusta National Golf Club, hitting the ideal shot at the Masters. Finau ranks 11th in strokes gained: tee-to-green, 17th in strokes gained: approach-the-green and 22nd in strokes gained: total. Finau spoke to ESPN about Woods' influence on him learning to play golf. Mind over matter for me.

"I wanted to know if I'm able to play and have confidence".

German prosecutors seek extradition for Puigdemont
Five separatist leaders are in custody and awaiting trial in Spain; all have denied any wrongdoing. However, other German parties have said the extradition is a matter for German courts.

Golf is an incredibly hard sport to play, but it doesn't require much athleticism at all.

Hopefully his injury doesn't keep him from playing in The Masters.

Finau did not meet with reporters, only saying, "I'm going to get it checked out" as he headed into the clubhouse.

Lesson here, kids? Don't run in golf shoes. But then the PGA Tour's longest driver immediately started taking advantage of Augusta National's four par-5 holes.
