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

Video showed Finau celebrate by running down the course.

No further proof needed after watching his grandson, Gary, hit a hole-in-one during the Par 3 Tournament.

The Par 3 contest gives players past and present an easy day to enjoy the day at Augusta National before the competition really tees off on Thursday. He popped the ankle back into place before calling his family over to celebrate with him.

Six-times Masters champion Nicklaus joined in the celebrations on the tee, along with playing partners Tom Watson and Gary Player, and had a tear in his eye as he hugged his grandson.

Her husband, Gopalrao Joshi , played an important part in her early education as he encouraged her to continue her education. According to the blog, Joshi's young life was tragically cut short when she died of tuberculosis before her 22nd birthday.

A tearful Nicklaus, who won 18 majors during his career, rated his grandson's ace the number one moment of his career.

He later revealed that he had predicted the hole-in-one in advance.

"Since I'm not playing in the tournament, I thought, 'Let's go for it this year, '" he said afterward. "I said, 'well I think you're going to make a hole-in-one". The legendary trio turned back the clock and shot a combined 11-under par on Wednesday, the lowest score coming from Watson, who finished with a six-under 21.

Tom Watson rolled back the years at The Masters on Wednesday, going round Augusta's Par 3 course in just 21 shots to become the oldest victor in history at 68 years old.

But the Par 3 Contest is very much not that. "I mean what a day".
