Finau then proceeded to sprint towards the hole in celebration.

While running backwards on the green, Finau's ankle folded under him.

Gary Nicklaus Jr, 15, was caddying for his grandfather in the traditional Par 3 Tournament on the eve of the Masters.

And now you can add Finau to the lore that is the Curse of the Masters Tournament Par-3 Contest.

Watson played the course with pals and fellow legends Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player.

He did finish his final few holes but declined interviews afterward and has been described to have been limping off. Finau is reported to have said to a passer by "we'll see" about his chances of playing in the tournament, but there's no official reaction as yet. The streak will continue this year, as 68-year-old Tom Watson won the Par-3 and will not be playing in the Masters.

Watch the magic moment below as three of the game's greats come together to celebrate the feat with Gary - a moment that brought record 18-time major champion Nicklaus to tears.

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

Nicklaus has been retired from golf for some time now, but is no stranger to making headlines at the Masters Par 3 contest. "I said, 'well I think you're going to make a hole-in-one".

As for Watson, who needed only eight putts on the nine holes, he joked, "That was the Watson of old". "I mean what a day".
