As he does, Finau turns around and begins to backpedal before rolling his left ankle.

In the Par-3 Contest, playing alongside legends Jack Nicklaus and 82-year-old Gary Player, Tom Watson, at age 68, won at 6-under to overtake Sam Snead (at 61) as the oldest player to win it.

GT stepped up, landing his tee shot on the green from where it rolled back down the slope at an angle and into the hole for an ace, with loud cheers ringing around the course.

Finau, ranked No. 34 in the world, ended up withdrawing from the event but stuck around for the final two holes. When he got up, it looked like he snapped his ankle back in place.

Nicklaus' grandson, Gary, was caddying for him during the event and made a decision to step up to the tee on the eighth hole.

Watch the magic moment below as three of the game's greats come together to celebrate the feat with Gary - a moment that brought record 18-time major champion Nicklaus to tears.




Watson, 68, previously won the Par 3 Contest in 1982 and becomes the oldest victor in the tournament's history.

"Since I'm not playing in the tournament, I thought, 'Let's go for it this year, '" he said afterward.

Call it the hole-in-one celebration gone wrong.

But the Par 3 Contest is very much not that. "I said, 'well I think you're going to make a hole-in-one".

Finau finished the nine-hole contest 1-under par.
