Tony Finau's eventful week at the Masters started when he dislocated his ankle during the Par 3 Contest on Wednesday.ย 

After navigating the injury to finish tied for 10th at Augusta National Golf Club over the weekend, the PGA Tour posted pictures of what Finau's ankle looked like (warning: contains graphic image):

In the first round of the Masters, Finau finished two shots off the lead with a 68. Only Jordan Spieth's 66 was better than the 28-year-old's score.ย 

The middle rounds were more problematic for Finau, who shot 74 and 73 on Friday and Saturday. He rebounded in a big way during the final round with a 66 that included a stretch of six consecutive birdies on the back nine.ย
