7th Hole – Pebble Beach Golf Links
Monterey, California – This year’s Million Dollar Hole-in-One for Charity presented by Facebook showcased the entire field of celebrity amateurs and athletes playing in this week’s AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, each taking a shot at $1 million for an ace on the 7th hole at Pebble Beach Golf Links.
Playing to a distance of 100 yards, the iconic par 3 on the edge of the Pacific did not yield a hole-in-one to any of the 32 participants – which included an array of popular actors, comedians and entertainment personalities, as well as sports legends from pro football, hockey and major league baseball.
Award-winning country music star Clay Walker was the overall winner, as closest to the hole in the finals, hitting it to 21 feet, 4 inches. That was not as close as his country singing counterpart singer Colt Ford was last year, hitting to 12 inches in the final. But it was good enough to defeat Chris “The Bachelor” Harrison and NFL wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald in the finals.
Walker – who earned $50,000 for his charity, Band Against MS – qualified for the finals with a shot of 6 feet, 5 inches.
This is the third year of the unique competition among celebrities on the eve of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, a $7.4 million purse PGA TOUR event played over Pebble Beach Golf Links, Spyglass Hill Golf Course and Monterey Peninsula Country Club Shore Course for three rounds, with the final round at Pebble Beach.
