A teen golfer still on her L-plates has won a car after making an ace at Bunbury Golf Club.
A wonderful story out of Western Australia today about 16-year-old Chloe Veeran’s car-winning hole-in-one.
Chloe holed out with her very first shot of the day during the PGA Pro-Am Series event at Bunbury Golf Club. Beginning the shotgun start second round at the par-3 17th hole, Chloe’s perfectly struck 7-iron landed on the front of the green and rolled into the hole.
And the prize for the feat? A brand new ISUZU ute worth $60,000.
The shot and the subsequent celebrations were all captured on camera, and Golf WA chatted to Chloe after the round.
With South West Isuzu the title sponsor of the tournament, a $60,000 Isuzu D-Max was on offer for any player who aced the 17th, and even though she’s an amateur Chloe is eligible to keep the car due to recent changes in the rules of amateur status.
Speaking to GolfWA, Chloe said: “It was one of those shots that just feel so good off the clubface, so I wasn’t surprised that it was tracking well towards the hole, but I never expected it to go in.
“My playing partners Ken Gao and Izaak Heales were very supportive and were telling me it had gone in, but until I ran up and saw it in the hole I wasn’t sure. Then I started screaming and jumping. It was such a shock!
