John Daly made a hole-in-one and thought he won a car, but he didn't
This is a strange story but still has a chance for a good ending.
I can't imagine a John Daly story having a strange twist to it, can you??
On Monday, while playing in the Humana Challenge pro-am, Daly made an ace on the par-3 No. 7 at the Nicklaus Private Course at PGA West.
An ace on that hole was supposed to win him a new Hyundai.
"I didn't even look at the shot," Daly told the San Diego Union-Tribune. "I leaned over to get my tee and was telling the Callaway representative that it felt pretty good. He said, 'Good, because it just went in the hole.'"
He also said he could get some run out of the new Hyundai.
"Trust me, with three kids I will put the new Hyundai to good use."
The shot came on his first swing with a new Callaway 9-iron, according to PGA.com. But that's not even the weird part!
Apparently the hole-in-one didn't count because it came after he hit a second ball.
I wonder who tattled on Big John. I wouldn't want to be around when he finds out.
Also, if Hyundai is smart they'll use the opportunity to give one of golf's biggest draws the car anyway and get some good publicity out of it.
