By landing a shot thirty-four feet, ten inches from the hole, Mike Ebel of San Diego took home the first-place prize of a seven-night Mexican Riviera or Caribbean cruise courtesy of Princess Cruise Lines and Carefree Vacations.
If Ebel or any of the other twelve shootout participants had hit a hole-in-one, they would have won $1 million.
San Diego resident, Frank Christian, finished in second place by stopping his ball fifty feet, three inches short of the pin. Robert Welsh came in third place.
The revenue generated by the Barona $1 Million Hole-in-One Shootout supports the non-profit Pacific Life Holiday Bowl.
