After draining his tee shot at the seventh hole, Finau sprinted up the fairway, then turned around and ran backward as he continued to celebrate. However, his inability to see where he was going may have caused Finau to have a misstep, and his left ankle buckled.
The 28-year-old Utah native, ranked 34th in the world, went to one knee, and he appeared to pop his ankle back into place before getting back on his feet and initially walking with a limp. He played the last two holes but withdrew from the event, and his ability to participate in Thursday’s first round could be in jeopardy.
