Man Enters Putting Zone, Exits $10,000 Richer

Des Moines, Iowa – Joe Schmit has a pretty decent short game. How decent? Schmidt recently sank two incredible qualifying putts before draining a 50-footer worth $10,000 during the Associated General Contractors (AGC) of Iowa Foundation’s Dick Sojka Memorial Golf Tournament.

As part of their annual golf outing, the AGC offers a $10,000 putting contest. To participate in the big prize putting contest, golfers buy in for $10 for a chance to enter the “Putting Zone” where the goal is to putt through a path of orange construction cones, placed on the green, without going outside the cones. Whoever makes it through the “Work Zone” getting closest to the pin, gets a chance to make a 50-foot putt for the $10,000 prize, which is split 50/50 between the winner and the AGC Foundation.

According to Ricke Weldon, Field Service Director for the AGC, “I must have made it too easy this year, because we had four qualifiers and had to have a putt-off. Joe won the putt-off. And then he drained the 50-footer. He was three for three. It was just unbelievable.” In the past 19 years, the AGC of Iowa Foundation has raised over $500,000 to provide scholarships to construction education students enrolled in accredited programs thus maintaining a quality workforce.

“Hole In One International is great to work with. I go online, get a quote, and in a few minutes everything is done. A few years ago we had a guy win a $500 Visa Card. Now we had this winner. Hole In One International is responsive to customers and offers very good value,” noted Weldon.
