Golfer Wins His Weight in Karl Rove For Hole-In-One


We've all heard about hole-in-one stories. Kid banks one off a tree. Guy knocks one in for a million bucks. Shane Bacon never has made one and it really, really pisses him off. 

But not a lot of them are stranger than this. Professional golfer and former three-month suspension recipient Elliott Saltman was playing in the Madrid Masters when his tee shot decided to do the eagle shuffle. The ace helped his scorecard, but it might also help his pantry, because Saltman won a prize not a lot of people can associate with. His weight in ham. Seriously.

Saltman, listed at 240 pounds, gets to take home some Spanish ham for his win, which has to be the best prize ever, right? I wonder if he has to check that or if they're just going to send it to his Scottish home? Judging by my meals in Scotland over the years, this could be the most anticipated packaged the country has ever received. 

Have you ever heard of a stranger gift at a golf tournament? If so, let us have it.

Didn't Elliot also have 2 aces in a tournament earlier this year?

Crazy!

That's so funny/weird/awesome! I hope the hole-in-one insurance was written to cover a... portly... golfer.

Spanish ham is incredibly good too.
