Tony Finau won't be stopped from participating in his first Masters.

The 28-year-old was the center of attention for all the wrong reasons at Wednesday's Par-3 Contest, as he dislocated his ankle while celebrating a hole-in-one.

Finau popped it back into place, and after undergoing an MRI on Thursday morning, was cleared to participate in the season's first major, his agent confirmed to Bob Harig of ESPN.

The No. 32 ranked golfer in the world got his round going alongside Bernhard Langer and Yuta Ikeda at 12:43 p.m. ET.
