Tony Finau made absolutely sure there was no repeat of last year’s dislocated ankle as he wore a fake protective boot in the Par 3 contest.

Wallace denies Lyle

Report from Matt Wallace’s play-off victory in the Masters Par 3 contest.

The American suffered the unfortunate injury during last year’s traditional contest on the eve of the tournament while running down the seventh fairway backwards in celebration of a hole-in-one before he popped his ankle back in place.

Finau came prepared ahead of his second visit to Augusta National and showed good humour to wear a boot provided by sponsors for his tee shot and avoided any jubilant reaction after finding the green.
