Golfer wins bodyweight in ham for hole-in-1
Thursday, October 6, 2011
MADRID (AP) -- Scottish golfer Elliott Saltman has hit a hole-in-one during his second round at the Madrid Masters to earn a tasty prize -- his bodyweight in ham.
Saltman made the shot from the par-3 third at El Encin Golf Hotel. Heavily cured and salted ham is a Spanish delicacy.
Despite the feat, the No. 686-ranked player is well off the leaders' pace. His opening-day 75 left him 3 over and 11 shots behind overnight leader Ross McGowan of England.
