SUNDAY, JAN. 20, 2019 — Participants in the second annual Million Dollar Hole-in-One Golf Shootout enjoyed a beautiful day on the Sun ‘N Lake Golf Course, but no one walked away with the million dollar prize.
Of the 12 finalists, Mark Ward shot closest to the pin, and Scott Hitt came in second. No one placed in the third and fourth positions.
The Foundation was grateful to its event sponsor, Ronnie Carter with Century 21 Advanced All-Service Realty; the award sponsor, Bowen and Son Roofing; and the media sponsors, Highlands News-Sun and Herald-Advocate. “We could not host an event like this without the support of all our sponsors, and we are grateful!” said Jamie Bateman, the Foundation’s executive director. “We hope to see everyone next year when the third annual Million Dollar Hole-in-One Shootout returns to the Sun ‘N Lake Golf and Country Club.”
A photo gallery will be available soon. As of Saturday evening, the 12 finalists and their qualifying shots were:
