"The pain level was way worse when the patches were off and I don’t think people realize how much of a difference they can make."
Tony Finau’s first Masters appearance in April of 2018 started off just as the realization of any long-standing dream should have. Enjoying the historic venue, the excitement that comes with the first major of the year, and practice rounds with Dustin Johnson, Jason Day, and Vijay Singh. “Walking around that place, knowing I would be teeing it up for the first time, it was extremely cool.” Tony’s dream continued into Wednesday with the famed Par 3 Contest, a tradition that draws much attention prior to the actual tournament. On the 7th hole with a full crowd watching and his family in tow, Tony’s tee shot landed on the green and spun back towards the hole, rolling in for an ace.
