120-Foot Putting Contest Winner Scores $100K

Inver Grove Heighs, Minn – You know the old adage ‘drive show, putt for dough’, right? Well, for putting contest winner Paul Shadle, a pilot from Rosemount, nailing not one, but 3 impressive putts landed him a South Bay pontoon boat (valued at approximately $75,000) courtesy of Nelson Marine, plus $25K in cash, to assist with taxes, during the 2018 Venture Bank Minnesota Golf Show.

The $100K Pontoon Putt, a fixture of the Minnesota Golf show, is not only a popular part of the show, it’s a fundraiser for First Tee. To qualify as a potential finalist for the Pontoon Putt Contest, attendees needed to first stop by the 1500 ESPN Tent during the first two and half days of the show and make a $5 donation for three chances to make a qualifying putt. Then, on Sunday, all the qualifiers returned for a “putt off”, to further narrow the field.

Shadle successfully holed his second putt on the initial qualifier, going on to win Sunday’s putt off, making him this year’s lucky finalist who got the chance to make a 120-foot putt for the grand prize.

And what it putt it was! Shadle’s winning shot was not only covered by the local media and CBS Sports, he was featured on the Golf Channel’s Morning Drive. What’s more, the big prize putt contest raised $4K for First Tee.

Memphis Man Putts His Way to $10K

Memphis, Tenn. — Congratulations to Michael Ralph Jr. of Memphis who recently won $10,000, courtesy of Fouts & Morgan, and paid for by Hole In One International.

Ralph won the big bucks this August during the 5th Annual Memphis Masters Classic, (formerly the MAAR-West TNHB) Putt-Fore-Cash contest, after he holed an impressive 50-foot putt.

To get a shot at the big bucks, contestants first had to qualify between 9s on the practice green, which narrowed the field down to six finalists. The finalists then participated in a second putt-off to find out who would get a shot at making the 50-footer. Ralph had the best short game that day, winning the $10,000 prize.

The Memphis Masters Classic is an annual joint venture of the West TN Home Builders Association and Memphis Area Association of Realtors. Funds raised from the tournament support the West TNHB Education Foundation.   Want to give your players the chance to putt for some serious cash? Then it’s time to give Hole In One International a call at 800-827-2249 about incorporating a giant-prize putting contest to your next golf tournament, tradeshow or sports event.
