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.

Outing participants could qualify for the million dollar shootout by getting closest to the pin on a designated par 3. As it turns out, a truly unbelievable total of three players qualified by making a hole in one, while Tom qualified with closest to the pin.
But, the story doesn’t end there… when it came time for the big bucks, Ted who has a 7.1 handicap, hit another hole in one during the actual shootout event… leading to the 4th ace of the day – and better still – scoring the million dollar prize.

If you’re a golfer, then chances are you’ve heard the name ‘Jason Hargett.’
Hargett is Hole In One International’s latest Million Dollar Shoot-out winner from Provo, UT who ended up acing a 150-yard hole with his nine iron at the Mark Eaton Celebrity Classic. The tournament took place at Red Ledges Golf Course in Heber City, Utah back in September of 2009.
Funnily enough, Hargett was somewhat reluctant to become a last-minute replacement in the tournament, as he suffered from a sore wrist. He aced the hole using a borrowed club from his brother… and then fell down as he charged the hole after the shot!
Hargett, the 35-year-old restaurant manager, decided to keep his day job despite having won the Million Dollar Shoot Out and decided to put a chunk of the money toward his childrens’ college funds.
The Million Dollar Shoot-out makes a great fundraiser and is also a great contest to run just to offer your players a ‘little’ something extra (to the tune of $1,000,000!).

While we can tell you all about how Hargett was a somewhat reluctant last-minute replacement with a sore wrist, or about the fact that he was using a borrowed club – or even how he fell down as he charged the hole after the shot, we know you’d rather see it.
