Steve Youngblood made The Homebuilders Association of Washington County's annual golf tournament a little more exciting this year.

The Chambersburg, Pa., resident posted a hole-in-one during action at Black Rock Golf Course - earning the organization and himself $5,000 each.

"It happened on the 160-yard, seventh hole," Homebuilders Association spokesman Dennis Swope said. "He used a 5-wood. It is the first hole-in-one in tournament history."
