Golfer wins lease on new car with hole-in-one at Pa. fundraiser

October 19, 2008

Josh Spreng scored a hole-in-one to win a two-year lease on a 2008 Toyota Camry.

His ace came on Oct. 2 at Antietam Healthcare Foundation's 13th annual golf tournament at Penn National Golf Club in Fayetteville, Pa.

He teed off at his final hole of the tournament and aced the 173-yard shot. Spreng's team went on to place first in their flight as well.

There were more than 230 golfers, but only one hit the winning shot on the 13th hole on Iron Forge course. And Spreng was a last-minute fill-in for another golfer.


"We are so excited to have a successful hole-in-one at our tournament and simply thrilled for Mr. Spreng." said Sandy Pollack, executive director of the Antietam Healthcare Foundation.

According to Dave Beagle, Penn National's golf pro, the club has about 10 to 15 holes-in-one per year, but this is only the third where someone hit one to win a car.

The golf tournament featured appearances by three LPGA pros, Jan Stephenson, Jill McGill and Angie Olberholser, as well as professional trick-shot artist Ben Whitter.

With more than 65 sponsors, funds raised by this year's tournament will benefit patient care and services at Washington County Hospital.

The hole-in-one car was courtesy of Younger Toyota in Hagerstown.
