Boston man wins $1 million hole in 1

By Associated Press

POSTED:



ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. >> Talk about karma. A Boston man who makes an annual trek to Albuquerque to play in a charity golf tournament hit a $1 million hole-in-one.

Using a rented 8-iron, Jeff Barton sunk the shot from 150 yards out during Corley's Albuquerque Lincoln Volvo Million Dollar Shootout. It was part of a tournament to raise money for East Mountain High School, where the children of Barton's friend, Peter Nyland, go to school.

His ball hit the front of the green and then rolled in the hole.

"It's crazy," Barton told the Albuquerque Journal (http://bit.ly/16VxShl).

Barton was the last one up, and assistant pro David Muttitt said he was just thinking, "OK you're the last one, come on, hit it and we get to go home."

Instead Muttitt got stuck filling out paperwork for the company that insures the prize.
