Laredo, Tex. – Congratulations to hole in one winner Armando Bustamante who won $100,000 this May, courtesy of IBC Bank-Laredo and paid for by Hole In One International.
Bustamante won the big bucks after he aced the 135-yard 12th hole with a 7-iron during the 36th annual IBC-Laredo Open Golf Tournament, which took place at the Laredo Country Club. According to witnesses, it was a great straight shot that landed about 5 feet from the hole and just rolled right in … and then the crowd went wild.
This was Bustamante’s second hole in one and it was the second time a lucky golfer had a big pay day at this event; the tournament had another $100K winner in 2017.

Congratulations to our Million Dollar Shootout winner Ted A., who won a $1,000,000 prize courtesy of The Founders Club, LLC, and paid for by Hole In One International.
Ted won the million-dollar prize after he and three other golfers all qualified to participate in a post-outing shootout event. But, what makes this story even more incredible, is that 3 of the 4 participants qualified for the shootout by making a hole in one, when getting closest to the pin would have cut it. Watch the congratulatory winner video.

Buies Creek, N.C. – Another putting contest winner! Who says a golf course can only hold a putting contest on a putting green? Well certainly not the folks at Keith Hills Golf Club who recently gave away $10,000, paid for by Hole In One International‘s sister company, Odds On Promotions, in a giant-prize on-court putting contest at Campbell University. Check out Larson’s amazing putt right here.
On February 9th, Jonathan Larson was randomly selected to participate in the arena putting contest, which took place during the first quarter break of the women’s basketball game. Larson had the perfect touch, sending the ball across the court and through a template, winning the big bucks.
This was the second time the golf course and university handed over the big bucks. In 2016, Brian Porter of Raleigh, nailed one from 94 feet also winning a $10,000 prize, paid by Odds On Promotions.

Mark S. of California putted his way to $10,000, courtesy of Spring Creek Golf and Country Club, and paid for by Hole In One International, after he nailed an impressive 50-foot putt surrounded by a gallery of fellow golfers.
