Dressed in a white caddie suit and playing in front of Nicklaus and playing partners Gary Player and Tom Watson, Gary brought about the biggest cheers of the day when making his first ever hole-in-one.
As he does, Finau turns around and begins to backpedal before rolling his left ankle. When he saw his shot disappear into the hole, Finau ran toward the green with his arms in the air.
Jack Nicklaus' 15-year-old grandson, GT, teed it up at his grandfather's request after the trio had all hit the green, and striped a wedge onto the slope behind and just right of the pin.
In a moment, a celebration turned into a scary moment for Salt Lake City native Tony Finau during the Masters Par-3 contest Wednesday in Augusta, Georgia.
Watson made six birdies - including four in a row to start - on his way to beating out Tommy Fleetwood and Thomas Pieters by a single shot and becoming the oldest player to lift the Wednesday trophy on the eve of The Masters (Sam Snead was 62 when he won the event in 1974). What a moment for the entire Nicklaus' family.

Palestinians say Israeli soldiers "deliberately" kill protesters on Israel-Gaza Border
Israel on Sunday rejected global calls for an independent investigation into Friday clashes near the Gaza-Israel border fence. For Palestinians, this bloodshed seems to be an order of the day and will go until they are liberated or completely quashed.
He later revealed that he had predicted the hole-in-one in advance.
We talked three days ago and I asked [G.T.], 'Do you want to hit a ball on No. 9?' I said, 'You're going to make a hole-in-one.
It was undoubtedly a Par 3 Contest for the ages.
But the Par 3 Contest is very much not that. "What a day. It's one I'll never forget".
Watson, 68, previously won the Par 3 Contest in 1982 and becomes the oldest victor in the tournament's history.
