What's the best prize that you have won after winning a game of golf? A big cash prize? How about a nice trophy and some bragging rights?
Well, for one lucky golfer that joined the 2019 Porsche Golf Cup World Final in Spain, it was a brand new Porsche.
That's right, one lucky golfer is now the proud owner of a yellow 911 Carrera S. Italian golfer Marco Leoni could not believe he was able to land a hole-in-one after hitting his golf ball uphill and into the 18th hole 160 meters away.
According to the 56-year old golfer, the swing felt good but he could not see where the ball landed. "It was only on hearing the spectators' reaction did I realize that the ball was in the hole. It's crazy. I'm so proud, and I'd like to thank Porsche for organizing such a fantastic tournament," said Leoni. Some of his fellow golfers reveled in his one-in-a-million-shot and celebrated alongside him in the 18th hole at the Canyamel golf course.
However, despite bagging the special hole-in-one prize, Leoni was not the overall champion for this year's cup. That went to Phil White from Team Great Britain who secured the top spot in the Singles Category. As for the overall World Trophy, that was awarded to Team Korea who not only a nice trophy, but also a special trip to watch the Porsche European Open in Hamburg from September 5 – 8, 2019.
Leoni may not have won this year's cup, but that doesn't matter as he is now one of the lucky few to actually win an all-new Porsche for just landing a hole-in-one shot.
