Port Huron, Mich. – Former baseball player and Detroit Tiger Milt Wilcox is certainly better known for his pitching than his putting. However, this June, during the Shawn Burr Foundation’s Shoot To Win putting contest, Wilcox holed an amazing 50-yard putt winning $20,000 paid for by Hole In One International.
Incorporating a putting contest that features an enticing prize is a wonderful way to generate additional sponsorship dollars and raise more funds during any golf event. And, when you purchase putting contest coverage from Hole In One International, you don’t have to worry if a “pinch putter” shows up and holes the shot, because we’ll be there to write the check.
