With a field of more than 150 players attending the uniquely formatted Swinging in the Sun for Aces golf tournament, excitement was bound to happen.
While no one bagged an “ace” or hole-in-one, Chris Carlton hit a ball on the 4th hole that landed less than two inches from the cup. Carlton also won the chipping contest and a one-year membership to Wigwam Arizona, as part of the guaranteed prizes offered during the all-par-three tournament.
Ten golfers, including Carlton, took aim at the $1 million Hole in One Shootout. Bob Roth hit the green with a very close shot, just missing the pin.
Other big winners included Lindsey Miller, who will enjoy a coastal get-away for two in California, Brad Monterano, who will golf at seven of Arizona’s most exclusive courses and big winner Phil Zimudio, who will play in the Lexus Champions for Charity tournament in Pebble Beach in December.
