That’s because Walker, who played in the 17th Annual Grizzly Golf Classic at West Plains Country Club in Missouri on June 8th, aced the insured target hole (#2) with his 5 iron. The hole measured a whopping 180 yards, and just so happened to be insured with a U.S. Open prize package by Missouri State University – West Plains.
This trip-for-two package includes a 6 day/5 night package and entrance badges Thursday – Sunday, roundtrip airfare, event transfers, plus overnight accommodations.

Did you know that the first ever U.S. Open was played on October 4, 1895, on a nine-hole course at the Newport Country Club in Newport, Rhode Island? The 36-hole competition played in the span of one day and consisted of ten professionals and one amateur. The winner was 21-year-old Horace Rawlins from England, who had arrived in the United States in January that year to take up a position at the host club. His earnings consisted of $150 cash out of a prize fund of $335, plus a $50 gold medal. His club acquired the Open Championship Cup trophy, which was presented by the USGA.
