One shot. $1 million. Are you up to the challenge?
Tuesday, July 16, 2013
Oh, nothing like Old Tom Morris -- or a dead ringer in this case -- to provide an interesting wake-up call on a Tuesday morning of Open Championship week.
And you might want to have a listen on what Morris has to say.
Machrihanish Dunes, No. 41 in our latest Golfweek's Best GB&I Modern Rankings, is holding a promotion featuring Morris that allows anyone that plays the course between now and Oct. 15 to be entered into a drawing that will bring back four players for a shot at making a hole-in-one on the 167-yard, par-3 14th hole.
The prize? A cool $1 million -- or as the course is calling it, the Mach Dunes Million. Yep, one tee ball could change your life. Think you could twist the wife's arm and make this into a instant vacation?
Morris and a secret video crew already crashed the course to surprise 20 golfers for an impromptu opportunity to win the bevy of greenbacks, with a couple of tee balls flirting with the hole. (Don't worry, the course is covered by insurance, so the $1 million isn't coming out of its pockets)
Yes, you must book a tee time or getaway, so click here to check it out.
(P.S. Old Tom Morris is played by actor David Joy, just in case you thought he came back to life . . .)
