Golfer in Arizona Wins New F-150 for Hitting a Hole-in-One
High school fundraiser turned out to be better for the new Ford F-150 owner than the team itself.
Imagine going to your kid’s scholastic athletics fundraising event with the hopes of having a good time and raising money for the program, only to win a brand new Ford F-150 at that event. According to AZCentral.com, that was exactly how this weekend went for Eric Lee, who hit a hole-in-one at a fundraiser for his son’s football team, but as it hitting a hole-in-one isn’t special enough, Lee sunk that shot on a hole that was sponsored by a local Ford dealership.
The prize for sinking a hole-in-one on that hole was a new Ford F-150, and in sinking the 174-yard shot, Lee won the free truck.
Saguaro High School Football Fundraiser
The Saguaro High School varsity football team has been holding their annual golf tournament fundraiser for years, but in the eight seasons that Coach Jason Mohns has been helping with the outing, he has never seen a hole-in-one. He has also never seen a parent win a new Ford truck at the event, but that all changed with Eric Lee’s shot on the sixth hole at Scottsdale Silverado Golf Course.
Silverado has six different par three holes, ranging from 131 to 174 yards. The sixth hole is the longer of those short-shots and it was number six that was sponsored by Peoria Ford. The dealership offered up a new F-150 for the first person who could hit a hole-in-one on the sixth hole, but with no one ever scoring a one on a hole in the fundraising event, the odds were good that the truck would be headed back to the dealership.
The Winning Shot
When Eric Lee stepped up to the tee at the sixth hole at Silverado on April 28, he delivered a perfect 174-yard shot that ended up in the bottom of the cup. We don’t know what Lee shot on any of the other holes, nor do we know who won the outing, but the father of Saguaro junior Matthew Lee drove home in a new, free Ford pickup.
There are no details on the truck, but based on the sole picture provided, it appears to be a 2019 Ford F-150 Lariat with four-wheel-drive. However, it could have been a base truck without any upgrades and it would have served as a great prize for this dad participating in his son’s football fundraiser.
