With his wife and children there to support him, Tony Finau said that his first experience with the Masters "was nothing short of a miracle."

Tony Finau’s run at Augusta National didn’t end with a green jacket. But the experience and the finish were worth the wait.

Finau used six-straight birdies on the back nine of his final round Sunday to card a 6-under-par 66, finishing tied for 10th with a four-day total of 281 in his first-ever Masters at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia.

The 28-year-old who grew up in Rose Park fired 18 birdies in with 11 bogeys in the first major of 2018, which began a day after he injured his ankle while celebrating a hole-in-one during the Par-3 Contest on Wednesday.
