Golfing is pretty much the antithesis of muscle cars and motorsports. It is a quiet, precise game requiring a different kind of driver, and a lot of patience. The crowning achievement of any golfer is shooting a hole in one, which is pretty much a one-in-a-million shot, depending on the course. Often the only reward is bragging rights, but in the case of one Nebraska man, his hole in one won was quite lucrative.
Jesse Gloystein, a Ford salesman and avid golfer, recently hit a hole-in-one at the Swingers Open at the Northridge Golf Course in Omaha, Nebraska, reports Omaha.com. His reward? A 2010 Hurst Mustang GT, valued at $77,000. Not bad for putting a ball into a hole.
Gloystein, who played golf in college, also happens to be employed by the sponsor of this contest, Woodhouse Ford. Gloystein, who is 30-years old, made his Mustang-winning shot from the fourth tee with a seven iron. The hole was 162 yards away and his ball bounced and overshot it, before spinning back around and going in.
Nine witnesses attested to the hole-in-one, and Gloystein went on to buy all 72 people on the course beer. As it turns out, he also won a new set of drivers from a raffle held the same day, though those were rewarded to other golfers after the fact. After all, such a prize pales in comparison to the $77,000 1-of-12 Hurst Mustang GT. It sounds like this great prize went to a nice guy (he even lets his wife drive the Hurst) and it makes us suddenly want to take up golfing.
