Tony Finau is optimistic of making his Masters debut after he suffered a sickening injury during the pre-tournament par-three contest.
Finau was running backwards in an enthusiastic celebration of a hole-in-one on the seventh when his left ankle buckled underneath him.
The 28-year-old then popped the dislocated ankle back into place and carried on, but declined to speak to reporters after leaving the ninth green.
X-rays later showed it was not broken, with the American waiting on the results of an MRI scan before deciding whether to go ahead with the tournament.
As you can see in the video below, the hole-in-one was fully deserving of a wild celebration but perhaps it wasn't quite the smartest thing to do 24 hours before the Masters.
Initially, the 28-year-old's shot looked way off the mark but remarkably rolled across the green and into the green, prompting him to charge up towards the green.
In fact, the video should come with a warning for the faint-hearted, Finau popping his ankle back into place isn't overly pleasant to see!

Despite the fairly gruesome nature of the injury, Finau remains surprisingly positive about his chances of being able to compete on Thursday afternoon.
Shortly after returning from the hospital he posted on Twitter: “Crazy day. Thanks for thoughts of concern, messages and prayers from all. I’m optimistic.”
Finau is due to begin his first round at 12:43 (17:43 BST) on Thursday alongside Bernhard Langer and Yuta Ikeda.
Rory McIlroy, Jordan Spieth, Dustin Johnson, Justin Thomas and Tiger Woods have all been given favourable odds by the bookies of emerging victorious on Sunday.
Finau, who was already considered an outsider, has now been given odds as far out as 90/1, understandably.
Nevertheless, it could be one of the stories of the weekend if Finau can recover in time.
