Finau then proceeded to sprint towards the hole in celebration.
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.
As he did so, his left ankle rolled over and he fell to the ground. When he got up, it looked like he snapped his ankle back in place. That came from Nicklaus' 15-year-old grandson, Gary Nicklaus Jr., nicknamed "G.T.", who aced the ninth hole and brought his 78-year-old grandfather to tears.
Nicklaus called it the "No. 1" moment in his golf career, which included winning 18 majors.Читайте также: Tesla boosts production, but falls short of Model 3 goals
"We talked about three days ago and said "GT do you want to hit the ball on nine?' and he said 'sure".
"What I did compared to that doesn't matter, " Nicklaus said through tears.
"Since I'm not playing in the tournament, I thought, 'Let's go for it this year, '" Watson said afterward.
He later revealed that he had predicted the hole-in-one in advance. "What a day. It's one I'll never forget". And exactly zero times has the victor gone on to win the actual Masters Tournament.
Because of Watson's win, the Par 3 jinx is ensured to last at least one year longer - as no Par 3 champion has ever won the main Masters tournament in the same week. "I mean what a day".При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
